From a scientific perspective, the results are fascinating and world-first. From a personal perspective, what I saw will stay with me for a long time.
The arrangement of bones in our specimen's fins are the same as those of 'fingers' in tetrapods. The only difference is the digits are locked within the fin, and not free moving.
Fish, frogs, turtles and platypus at major risk of extinction following the bushfires. So why aren't they getting much attention?
Recent rains have not eliminated the threat of a repeat of last summer's mass fish deaths.
Fire debris flowing into Murray-Darling Basin will exacerbate the risk of fish and other aquatic life dying en masse in a repeat of the shocking fish kills of last summer.
Regulations have lowered mercury emissions globally, but the risks to ocean ecosystems and human health may be getting worse.
The EU continues to enter into fresh agreements with countries, despite evidence of serious population declines in the species of interest.
Fish may not have eyelids to close, but they sleep – and perhaps even dream.
Consumers are increasingly concerned about the sustainability of their fish.
Nutritious fish are being diverted away from countries that could benefit from them the most.
Fish can't read maps, and their eggs and larvae drift across national boundaries. Recent research shows that local problems in one fishery can affect others across wide areas.
Big storms with lots of flooding, like hurricanes Dorian and Maria, actually restore the Caribbean's delicate balance between native and nonnative fish species, new research finds.
Scientists are left with two conclusions. Either Nessie is an eel, or she never existed at all.
Fish that live in the sea have found amazing ways to control the amount of water and salt in their bodies, and stay hydrated.
As the oceans warm, fish are moving to stay in temperature zones where they have evolved to live. This is helping some species, hurting others and causing a net reduction in potential catch.
A new IPCC report has called for radical changes in food production to avoid catastrophic climate change. Rice-fish farming and mixed crops could help.
Many chronic diseases increase our risk of Alzheimer's disease. This link between our bodies and our brains means certain healthy choices could protect our cognitive function.
Clownfish eggs exposed to artificial light completely fail to hatch, highlighting the growing problem of light pollution.
Scrapping the idea of a species is an extreme idea – but perhaps a good one.
It's not just the ocean we need to worry about – plastic is accumulating in the world's rivers, too.
