From London zoo in England:
A fish which disappeared from UK waters over 30 years ago has been cast a lifeline by ZSL.
Four burbot fish are now being displayed in one of the Aquarium’s freshwater tanks, giving members of the public their first ever glance at the mysterious species which originate from the streams and lakes of North America and Europe.
The fish, which hasn’t been seen or caught in UK waters since the 1970s, is the only freshwater member of the cod family and joins over 200 different species in our own collection.
