Another new record for Sydney Harbour!

Henrick's observation of a juvenile Magpie Perch, Cheilodactylus nigripes, provides us with both a northern range extension (previously known to Kiama) and also a new record for Sydney Harbour!
This observation brings the Sydney Harbour species count to 596 and the number of morwong species to seven. View the Sydney Harbour species list on the Australian Museum website.
Magpie Perch occur in Australia and New Zealand. Prior to this observation the Australian distribution of the species extended through temperate southern waters from to Albany, Western Australia to Kiama, New South Wales plus northern Tasmania.
Well done Henrick!

Woohoo! 2000 species and counting!

Some of you may have noticed that Australasian Fishes recently passed a significant milestone.
The project now contains observations of more than 2000 species. Thank you everyone!
The lucky 2000th species is the Bartailed Flathead, Platycephalus australis. This observation was uploaded by Gordon Black (rick-ludd)
When the project went online, we never dreamed that in just under 2 years we'd have amassed observations of 2000 species. Again, thanks all!
