Nature Ramble

Off the coast of Sergipe in Brazil they have been testing new circular hooks designed to combat the inadvertent catching of marine turtles.

The hooks are a welcome success, in more ways than one; fishermen have hauled in a total of fifteen new species of marine life, hither to unknown.

Local fishermen with forty years fishing behind them have never seen the likes before.

Now the fish are in the Oceanário de Aracaju for study.
