Check out these fascinating fish from Africa’s lower Congo River.
Hi, I’m Melanie Stiassny and I’m an ichthyologist, a scientist who studies fish. At the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, I work on everything that has to do with fish, from research and exhibits to scientific expeditions.
Take a look at some photos from my latest expedition to Africa’s lower Congo River. It’s the home of one of the most diverse fish communities in the world.
