The facts collected to describe
each fish were pulled from various sources over the internet by Sealight Gallery's
staff. Sealight wants to acknowledge that we did not write any of the material
in regard to the descriptions, but we found the information collected fascinating.
We hope that in reprinting it readers will be inspired by it to save and preserve
the ocean and all of her glory.
