Just returned from another Stealth Mission

Another long day at the office, and then an hours drive across the Humber Bridge to Licolnshire. Broughton near Bigg, just outside Scunthorpe.

I visited a local fishkeeper, who is shutting down his fish house, only to find he had a Royal tiger shovelnose catfish Merodontotus tigrinus or Brachyplatystoma tigrinum it’s new latin name and an fantastic Green Arrowana in his 7ft display tank.

This is the second time I’ve seen a Merodontotus tigrinus, the first one, was when it was first imported into the UK, and the price tag was well over a 1000 GBP for the fish.

More on my visit tomorrow.
