Fish collecting with friends

20th November 2019

On the 30th October I along with three good friends, Danny Blundell Gerald Buswell and Chris Ralph, set of on a two week tour to search for new fishes in the Madre de Dios and Cusco regions of south eastern Peru. We sampled several new before inaccessible locations and found many species we had not seen before. Of special interest were the Ancistrine species of the Rio Araza drainage. 

A new location, a clear water fast moving stream draining into the lower Las Piedras.
