review A Fish Caught in Time

A Fish Caught in Time Read Ñ 0 Read Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ì Samantha Weinberg Just before Christmas in 1938 the young woman curator of a small South African museum spotted a strange looking fish on a trawler's deck It was five feet long with steel blue scales luminescent eyes and remarkable limb like fins unlike those of any fish she had ever seen Determined to preserve her unusual find she searched for days for a way to save it but ended up with only the skin and a few bonesA charismatic amateur ichthyologist JLB Smith saw a thumbnail sketch of the fish and was thunders.
