A new arapaima

October 19th 2013 14:14
These large Amazonian fish, known as arapaima, are photographed in a public aquarium in the Ukraine. The dark bar on the lower side of the head is an elongated sensory cavity. Now, a new species has been discovered in Brazil.
Most anglers have a list of "I'd like to go to..." places they want to fish. A lot of guys want to fish the ocean and go after sailfish or marlin. Personally, I'd like to go to Brazil and fish for peacock bass or arapaima. Alas, hooking an arapaima would probably put me in the class of other poachers so, aside from the cost of the plane ticket, that's my excuse to hold off.

Be that as it may, another type of arapaima can be added to the list of fish because reports say a new species of has been found. Arapima have nearly been fished to extinction because of lack of regulations and the meat is said to be VERY tasty so, this is a big find because it's not just biological features that make up this new species.

Despite this modern world, new species of fish turn up every now and then. Finally, we have one we can look at and say, "Yeah, he's different."

Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!
