I’ve just returned (more’s the pity) from a month pottering around Malaysia in search of freshwater fishes and other interesting stuff, and will be posting a series of blogs about the trip since there’s far too much material to cram into a single piece.
There are around 6000 hi-res photos plus interviews and videos to check and process so for the time being here are a few images off the phone-cam, some of which were taken by my wife. First report to follow in a day or two and will feature a couple of very special fishes.
Hope these whet the appetite ’til then…
Aquaculture Technologies Pte Ltd., Singapore is one of Southeast Asia’s most important exporters of wild-collected fish. We were lucky enough to be granted an exclusive in-depth interview with owner Patrick Yap which will be published soon.
