You have to take care of the celacantos

1990/06/01 Elhuyar Zientzia Iturria: Elhuyar aldizkaria

Western German scientist Hans Fricke and his team claim that celacanthus has been very valuable in better understanding the evolution of species.

This fish, which is a living fossil, lives around the Comoro Islands in the Indian Ocean and is not believed to be any more. The first piece was captured in 1938 and until then this type of fish was considered missing. Today it is protected, but still today, fishing fleets unintentionally catch other fish. This has captured some two hundred people.

It has not been possible to determine the number of specimens of this type of fish, so higher levels of protection have been proposed.
