Fischnester im Weddellmeer

Fush nests in the Weddell Sea

A research team from the Alfred Wegener Institute has recorded more than 10,000 nests of the ice fish Neopagetopsis ionah with a camera system at the bottom of the southern Antarctic Weddell Sea. Analysis of the density of fish nests and area size suggest about 60 million actively breeding fish – the largest fish colony ever described worldwide.
