Fish, Fisheries and Queryomics
Beel loves old-timey photographs of big fish. First, they are fun to look at. Second, they remind us of what once was, before commercial fisheries had such a large impact on fish stocks.
The Daily Mail, United Kingdom, recently published several old photographs showing anglers and their large fish. The article, which is worth looking at, noted that some of these fish are now becoming rare, like the bonito shark (shown in the photo above).
Well, friends, the small shark on the left is a bonito, but real star of this photograph is the large sawfish Pristis sp. on the right. Woo hoo, says Beel, what a beauty!
