Segment One
Fish in the News. Each week the Bailey Brothers start the Pet Fish Talk Show with some fun and interesting stories about fish in the news.
 
 
A Discus Fish. A Discus Fish
tending to a batch of its eggs.
Photo credit to the North American Discus Association, a collection of discus enthusiasts, hobbyists and breeders who are interested in the advancement of our hobby, through education and improvements in the quality of the fish we keep and breed. Our goal is to educate the general public, encourage new members, provide information on the discus hobby and promote discus at fish shows. Click here to learn more about the NADA.
 
A Large Blue Lobster. A Rare Blue Lobster
caught last weekend by Steve Hatch and his uncle Robert Green was spared from being cooked and ripped apart on a plate because of its color. The 1 1/2 -pound clawed creature is bright blue, the result of an extremely rare genetic mutation. It turned up Sunday morning in one of Hatch and Green's lobster traps at the mouth of the Thames River in Connecticut. It now lives in the Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration, where it will live out its days in an elementary school classroom for children to learn about.
 
 
In Tokyo, Japan,
Rare Giant Manta born in Japan aquarium.
What is believed to be the first giant manta ray born in captivity has arrived at a southern Japanese aquarium, the facility said Sunday, 0617/2007. The baby manta, a female, was born late Saturday in a huge fish tank at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, more than a year after its parents mated, the aquarium said in a statement posted Sunday on its Web site.

In New London, Connecticut,
A Rare Blue Lobster Found in River Avoids the Cooker.
A lobster caught last weekend by Steve Hatch and his uncle Robert Green was spared from being cooked and ripped apart on a plate because of its color. The 1 1/2 -pound clawed creature is bright blue, the result of an extremely rare genetic mutation. It turned up Sunday morning in one of Hatch and Green's lobster traps at the mouth of the Thames River. "I've heard about them but this is the first one I've ever seen," Hatch told The Day of New London newspaper. Later that afternoon, he put the lobster in a cooler and brought it to the Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration, where it will live out its days in an elementary school classroom for children to learn about.

In Traverse City, Michigan,
Being eaten isn't the only danger for Great Lakes Fish.
It hardly seems fair, but new research suggests that water creatures nimble enough to avoid being gobbled up by predators may harm their species more than help. Fish, amphibians and even tiny zooplankton do many things to escape hungry enemies, from finding new homes to changing their physical characteristics. Such tactics may save individual lives _ but in the long run may leave the population at large worse off, Michigan State University scientists say. "When you introduce a predator into a system ... the potential prey don't sit around and say, `Eat me,'" fisheries biologist Scott Peacor said. "They have adapted to get out of the way. But that comes at a cost." While focused on two particular species in the Great Lakes, the study has implications for predator-prey relationships across the spectrum of aquatic life and even for land animals, Peacor said Thursday.

In Longbeach, California,
Jeremy Jackson honored by Aquarium of the Pacific.
The Aquarium of the Pacific honored oceanography professor Jeremy Bradford Cook Jackson and the firm of Moffatt & Nichol Saturday, citing their leadership roles in protecting the environment. The awards were presented at the aquarium's Ocean Conservation Awards Gala. The annual black-tie event raised $300,000 to support the Aquarium's education and conservation initiatives. Jackson is the William and Mary B. Ritter Memorial Professor of Oceanography at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, and a senior scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in the Republic of Panama. His current research includes the long-term ecological consequences of historical over fishing on coastal ecosystems and the ecological and evolutionary consequences of the gradual formation of the isthmus of Panama about 3 million years ago. He is the author of more than 100 scientific publications and five books. Click here to read more.
 
Research Using Xiphophorus Hybrid Fish
Xiphophorus is a freshwater fish genus comprised of 23 species. These fishes (if one refers to multiple species one uses the term "fishes") live in eastern drainages in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras, with most of the described species living in Mexico. They are divided into three groups, the Northern Swordtails, the Southern Swordtails and the Platy Fish. It was realized as early as the 1920's that one could make hybrids between the different species. These hybrids were normally viable and could produce subsequent generations of offspring. In some cases, one simply had to place one Xiphophorus species next to another in an aquarium, and they would reproduce. In many situations, the resulting hybrid fish that were produced would show traits from both parent species, and were intermediate in appearance. For example, several dominant pigment patterns derived from two fish strains would appear within F1 hybrids, thus giving them characteristics of both species. In other cases, the hybrid fish were quite different from either parent, such as when fish developed beautiful red or yellow colors. In such situations, pigment patterns were derived from one of the species and became enhanced in the hybrid offspring. It was also realized by scientists in Germany and the United States, that hybrid fish sometimes also developed melanoma, one of deadliest skin cancers. These melanomas were derived from improperly regulated melanistic pigment patterns. Scientists immediately began to study Xiphophorus hybrids, since they realized that they had discovered an animal model that could be useful in the study of cancer. Click here to read more.

Are you interested in Discus Fish?
This graceful cichlid hails from the Amazon River system, one of the largest and most stable biotopes on our planet. It was first introduced to the hobby in the early 1930's and it's still considered one of the most demanding and expensive freshwater tropical fish. Click here to read more.
