Another Fish Story

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this lazy bloke looked like an Antarctic Cod (Dissostichus mawsoni). It's not related to the common Cod, so it won't end up as fish and chips! The Antarctic Cod has a built-in antifreeze to survive in subzero water temperatures. If your blood contained antifreeze, you would look drunk too!
Life finds a way to hang on almost anywhere. Today we've been studying subglacial lakes in Antarctica. Just like on Enceladus, there is liquid water hundreds of metres below the Antarctic ice! They are warmed by geothermal heat and even contain life!

Wow Louise, is that one of your photos? Antifreeze in deed, hope you don't drink the stuff. lol!

Amazing how much we do not know about 'nature' - and amazing how much we have 'discovered' about the wonders & majesty of Nature, and yet so few know or seem to care about. Keep on posting.

Here's looking at ya! - Q.

Hi Q9! It is always nice to hear from you. Yes, I took all these fish photos myself. I also learned not to drink before diving, even the local wine slows you down. An underwater camera is a much better use of resources.

Wow Louise; you certainly have an exciting life! My goodness and speaking of antifreeze, I will be posting on that perhaps for tmw. The posts today are about Thomas Thiemann and new chemical transistors using Carbon nanotubes. Enjoy your week:)

I might be wrong too, but I don't think that it's an antartic cod. It almost looks like some variety of scorpionfish.
