Paul Anderson


What do the Lyretail Anthias and the Axilspot Hogfish have in common?  They're new species whose eggs have been photographed and documented in the Open Source Marine Fish Egg Catalog.

Do you work for a public aquarium or zoo?  Do you have any of these species in your exhibits?  Ever thought about aquaculturing them?  Get an idea of the size, shape, and morphometrics of their eggs in order to identify and target them in your aquarium or zoo's larval rearing program.  Check out these and other new species in the Catalog by registering with your aquarium or zoo email address today!

The Egg Catalog is comprised of marine aquarium fish eggs diligently collected, sampled, and photodocumented by the Aquarium of the Pacific, California Academy of Sciences, Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Mystic Aquarium, National Aquarium, New England Aquarium, the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, and Shedd Aquarium.  The Project is led by the New England AquariumRoger Williams University, the California Academy of Sciences, and the Coral Reef Aquarium Fisheries Campaign.  Funding for the project has been generously provided by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Conservation Grants Fund and New England Aquarium.
