E about it that makes you want to seek out some favourite animals in an impossible region I would read this book animals in an impossible region I would read this book and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who has a curiosity for animals I tried to see if this fish was featured in the Jason Mamoa starrer film AUAMAN but failed to find it there some scenes were uite a blur though But maybe it wasn t really there For this is not a violent fishI consider this fish the Coelacanth pronounced silly cunt as the rock star of all the fishes in our seas and oceans The world was shocked when a live specimen of this fish was caught in 1938 just before the outbreak of the second world war Utter disbelief and amazement was the initial reaction of those nowledgeable in fishes who first saw it Another 14 years passed before a second live specimen was caught and this was even after tremendous efforts were spent catching it with handsome rewards put up for whoever would succeed in catching another oneOf course local fishermen have been catching this fish occasionally even before this but were unaware of its rarity and importance It was only in 1938 when the same was brought to the attention of scientists and experts and to the world in generalBut what s so special about this fish It Is A Living Fossil a living fossil this shock of a discovery in 1938 it was nown only by the fossils it had left which had been dated to be around 400 MILLION years old How long ago is 400 million years That was before human beings and their precursors ever existed before the dinosaurs before the early mammals before the early amphibians This fish was in fact among the early fishes suspected to have learned how to walk on land then evolved into reptiles and amphibians and dinosaurs and ultimately humans in an evolutionary process involving millions of yearsIt is then evolved into reptiles and amphibians and dinosaurs and ultimately humans in an evolutionary process involving millions of yearsIt is very much older than another living fossil subject of my earlier good review the Wollemi Pine called the Dinosaur Tree because prior to its discovery in a remote part of Australia it was nown to have been extinct also after flourishing du.

This is not really about the coelacanth intself but is instead about The Men And Women Involved men and women involved first realizing what it was and what it meant when one was caught by fishermen in 1938 and about the uest to find out where they live and how they function I suppose you could call it a modern history of the coelacanth though a fairly shallow one I would have liked back story information about the first coelacanth fossils found and what people thought about them when they were discovered etc but I guess there are other books for that As it is it s an interesting story justvery light on details The story of the coelacanth fish I didn t now what this was but of the coelacanth fish I didn t now what this was but completely hooked by the story so to speak ha ha Thought to be extinct fossils date back 400m years It may be humans ancestor in the evolutionary chain One w Imagine seeing a dinosaur suddenly appear This is as close as it gets to that A fish nown only through fossils is trawled up from the depths of the sea by a fisherman in South Africa An extinct coelacanth He gives it to the curator of a museum who brings in a fish expert The internal organs of the fish were not maintained so the eccentric expert seeks out another specimen He journeys further up the current to Comoros were not maintained so the eccentric expert seeks out another specimen He journeys further up the current to Comoros he believes the species may originate And finds some Is the coelacanth the missing link The species that paved the way from sea to land All this you will need to read for yourselfThe book details all of the scientific information It also details the international rivalry and politics involved It is as much of a human story as it is about a remarkable animalThe information provided is written for the average person and adds some interesting facts that would interest people who now about fishThe end of the book provides technical information about the fishes morphology the fins the scales the eyes the legs etcAlso included is a list of all museums that possess a specimen on displayI enjoyed every single page Even though the book is sort of scientific it has such a lovely wistful ton. Just before Christmas in 1938 the young woman curator of a small South African museum spotted a strange looking fish on a trawler's deck It was five feet long with steel blue scales luminescent eyes and remarkable limb like fins unlike those of any fish she had ever seen Determined to preserve her unusual find she searched for days for a way to save it but ended up with only the skin and a few bonesA charismatic amateur ichthyologist JLB Smith saw a thumbnail sketch of the fish and was thunders.

indian ocean near 
Ocean near Comoros Islands located between the African mainland and the island of Madagascar Several decades after however the world was again astounded mainland and the island of Madagascar Several decades after however the world was again astounded another live specimen was caught in the seas of IndonesiaAny fisherman who catches another Coelacanth in a place other than Indonesia and the Comoros islands could become rich and famous But it seems this is a fish which is not easy to find much less catch even though it is a large fish which can grow to as big as 6 feet and as heavy as 200 plus pounds For not only is it rare it also stays in underwater caves during daytime and go out only at night to hunt for food basically just staying in one place and waiting for food suid small fishes etc to come near it It also does not survive in captivity If you catch a live one and haul it up to shallow waters it wouldn t be able to survive the stress and will die slowly even if you set it free No one nows how they mate but recent discoveries show that the female Coelacanth hatch her eggs inside her and give birth to baby CoelacanthsSome other strange characteristics of this fish aside from its appearance are it is edible but does not taste great if you eat it you most likely will have diarrhoea later it sometimes swim vertically with its head pointed at the ocean floor its four limb like fins appear to be rotating while swimming it is covered by very hard scales and it has a strange puppy dog tailYou can find rare footages of this fish live underwater at youtube This fascinating history of the Coelacanth is beautifully written lighthearted and fascinating A brilliant yarn in every sense of the word it tells the story and fascinating A brilliant yarn in every sense of the word it tells the story how the Coelacanth went from being a fossil considered to be extinct for 50 70 million years to being one of the few distinguished living fossils of our timeThe story takes us back to East London South Africa 1938 when a young museum curator Marjorie Courtenay Latimer went down. Lminated in a dramatic act of international piracy As the fame of the coelacanth spread so did rumors and obsessions Nations fought over it multimillion dollar expeditions were launched and submarines hand built to find it In 1998 the rumors and the truth came together in a gripping climax which brought the coelacanth back into the international limelight A Fish Caught in Time is the entrancing story of the most rare and precious fish in the world our own great uncle forty million times removed. ,
