Coelacanth Autopsy reveals pregnant fish

The Autopsy of the Coelacanth that was caught last month around Bunaken National Marine Park, surprisingly showed that in fact the fish was pregnant, hopefully the teams from Indonesia, France and Japan will be able to use the data gained, to better understand this amazing creature.
17th July Update

I have been informed by Manado University that I cannot publish any information regarding this species of fish it seems
that somebody from Japan has complained about us showing this video footage, and they have cited that they own all
the rights to it !!!

Of course we appologies profusely if we have infringed any copyrites, though we belive we have not, it is such a pitty
that those (Japanese) involved with the Coelacanth cannot work together with those that are and live on location like
us and that instead they wish to show force of strength so as to keep exclusivity to themselves.
Surely not a positive way forward, though time will tell.
