If 4000 people held hands...

Hi fish-fans,
I'm delighted to be able to inform you of another project milestone. Australasian Fishes now contains observations from over 4000 people.
I wanted to give you an 'on the water' analogy of how incredible this is. So, with your indulgence, I'll ask you to imagine all 4000 of us holding hands with our arms outstretched. In this friendly display of community, the Conger line (enjoy the pun!) would extend most of the way from Sydney Harbour Bridge to South Head, a trip that would take about 15 minutes on the ferry.
So, to each of you, thank you so much for your contribution. I hope that despite the tragedy of Covid-19, by this time next year, the Conger line will extend out of The Heads and depending upon your preference, either north towards the tropics or south into more temperate waters.

Fabulous, Mark!

I still remember you telling me your ideas for this in the DigiVol/FoH Tearoom all those years ago!
