Melanie Said
People catch fish that scientists haven't seen before. I have no idea what these fish are, but local people know. They recognize them-they even have names for them-but the fish are new to science and scientists. I look to see what other animals the fish live with. What do they eat? How do they live? I find out as much about them as possible by observing them and making notes. All this information helps me to build a big picture of what lives in this place.
