A graduate student that I am working with is studying the development
of sensory systems in antarctic fish. He has discovered that the most
significant and important developments in p.antarcticum occur over the
size range 8-13mm. The problem is we only have a few samples. Two
questions I ask :
1) has anyone spare samples of these that we could have ?
2) we are going to the Antarctic later this year, but think it will be
very difficult to catch these animals. Has anyone had any experience
in this area and therefore some hints maybe ?
I am very gratefull to any help. I am also very interested in hearing
from anyone else studying sensory development in fish.
