Dear FishBase Guestbook users,

Welcome to our new and improved site!

Thus, in our aspiration to keep the site as simple as possible yet functional, we came up with this new version protected by a captcha system. We have checked and cleaned the database, keeping all good postings. However, note that the record numbers are tentative, we may need to change them in the coming months, and that the site is without registration at the moment. Please bear with us as we continuously develop this site to maximize service to fish enthusiasts all over the world. Feel free to comment on this version and make suggestions for improvements.

Lastly, may we clarify that the Guestbook is where you may express your thoughts about our website and/or provide comments on our work which donít necessarily need a response. If you wish to make technical comments and inquiries that needs scientific responses from experts in our team or other entities/groups that wishes to share their knowledge on the subject at hand, then you may use our Fish Forum for that purpose.

I came across your site whilst looking for information on the Bullrout. I was stung yesterday whilst lure fishing in the Nepean gorge for Australian Bass. I have been fishing the Hawkesbury / Nepean river systems for 25 years and have never come in contact with this species. I asked many of my fishing club friends and no one has ever caught one on a lure to their knowledge. As i spent 8 long painful hours in hospital because of it I don't know if I'm lucky or unlucky !!! Regards, John Secombe

i have a ruby red oscar and an albino oscar that i have brought up from babies. now that they have been with me the past 9 months, how can i tell if they are male or female? also i would like to know the different types of food that they will eat besides comet feeders and chilid pellets. i started them in a ten gallon tank from the beginning and quickly moved them to a 20 gallon high. now they are in a 30 gallon long and are 2 very happy fish. they share the tank with a regukar allergy eater and 2 plactomis' allergy eaters. all are doing well and growing at a rapid rate. thanks... timmit001

I was delighted to find this data base and encourage you to continue. Also, I am interested in learning more about sport fisheries in the Atlantic ocean. My particular interest is in Rockfish, Blue Marlin and Thunnus. I believe, by cooperating with fish biologists and natural resource managers, sport fisherman can aid in protecting our fisheries habitat. Thank you for all of your hard work.

I bought a copy of fishbase cd. It's very relevant in my work as a government employee, but lately my version of software copy stop running in windows 98 and it's expensive to have an updated copy. Can you offer a special price for the gov't. offices?

I'm a newcomer to your website, but from what I've seen so far, it is the most detailed and informative references I have ever come across. We are introducing a recently developed eco-friendly, high-tech, high-yield fish farm system in landbased tanks and I'm sure that the information found on your website shall be very useful for us. Best reagards, Idar Moldskred

Great information treasure. For more than one year i had NOT to go to Vienna scientific libraries (150 km from here) and found enough stuff in this SITE. This means: Reduction of CO2 output, of wasted time. But alas it means also: sitting in front of the computer for hours and hours. Nevertheless: Thanks for that great endeavour.
