The following Wild Chat is with Jemina who is a Marine Biologist at the Institute for Marine & Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania. Currently Jemina coordinates the Handfish Conservation Project working tirelessly researching and collecting data to help recover these critically endangered fish.


Jemina and her team have found waters of Tasmania are warming due to the East Australian Current bringing in warmer waters, which inevitably, is changing the fish and their habitats.


The Handfish sure is a unique looking creature and as Jemina describes the warming waters are not the only issue involved in the decline of these fish.


Make sure you do yourself a favour and visit the website http://www.handfish.org.au and find out more on how you can help by donating towards this project plus you get to see the weird and wonderful photos of these cold water fish.


I really enjoyed learning more about what Handfish are and excited to see this project bring in more information so we can learn about our creatures of the sea.
