It’s official: North Sulawesi is a fish biodiversity superstar! That’s the conclusion of the folks from Lembeh Resort and Critters@Lembeh, after the results emerged of their “Fish Geek Week” last year.
Naturally, über fish geeks Dr. Mark Erdmann and Dr. Gerald Allen were there to lend their considerable expertise, managing to add another 43 species to the 1058 already recorded in North Sulawesi. By their reckoning, that puts North Sulawesi ahead of places like Bali, Cendrawasih Bay and East Kalimantan in the biodiversity stakes.
Among the new finds was the new species of Atelomycterus catshark pictured above. Check out some of the other new critters Mark and Gerry unearthed during Fish Geek Week 2014 here.
