The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) of Australia, recently spotted a rare pink handfish near Tasmanian coast, after 22 years. The fish was last spotted in 1999.
Why has the species named handfish?
The species has been named ‘handfish’ because of their little hand like structure, which they use to walk on the sea bed.
Population of Handfishes
Handfishes have small population sizes and their distributions are restricted. Thus, they are highly vulnerable to disturbance. Some species are classified as critically endangered.
Characteristics of Handfish
Handfishes grow up to 15 cm long. They have skin covered with denticles, which give then an alternate name ‘warty anglers’. They are slow-moving fish.
