Is it me or is this border on preposterous? TWENTY new, never before seen species of fishes are found in a Fish Market.

I'm curious how you would order.

"Excuse me. I'll take a pound of shrimp, 2 dozen clams, oh, and a pound and a half of that never before seen species. Any cooking tips?"

Interesting but I wonder if they are more than just new species but rather mutation of existing species due to the pollutants in the water.

Fish market? What recipes are available for these new species?

Interesting question. Doesn't the question need be asked whether these new species are poisonous or not? Certain fish, such as the Blowfish are highly toxic.

Well something to think about, The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) may be doing studies in Indonesia but their background is rather interesting. . .



Research highlights include the invention of atomic absorption spectroscopy, development of the first polymer banknote, invention of the insect repellent in Aerogard, gene splicing technology and the introduction of a series of biological controls into Australia, such as the introduction of Myxomatosis and Rabbit calicivirus for the control of rabbit populations. CSIRO's research into ICT technologies has resulted in advances such as the Panoptic Search Engine[1] (now known as Funnelback) and Annodex[2].

It may be something more than just new species what they are into . . . in Indonesia. . .

I'll bet they weren't new to the locals who had them for sale. The oceans are huge and there is so much life in the waters around indonesia that the surprise here should be that scientists didn't think doing this market crawl more often or earlier.

The fish pictured all look like similar species found in other areas of the world.

You may be right about that, but it still makes you wonder. I mean we're talking about TWENTY new species. Not one, two, or even a dozen but TWENTY.

Well it's over 5 years, not just one trip to the market.


Fresh Fish! Fresh Fish!
How fresh is it?
Well... it's so fresh they don't even have a name for it.

Now that's funny! Thanks for the chuckle.

Keep in mind that these are new species, but within known genuses (genii?). So they'd be recognizable as a regular fish that a person might consume. Species distinctions can be very fine indeed.
