New Species Of Fish Found In Sweden

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (UPI) — Swedish scientists say a new fish species has been discovered in Vaderoarnam, known as the “Weather Islands,” off the country’s west coast.

The species, Callionymus reticulatus, or reticulated dragonet, was captured on film by Lars-Ove Loo, an underwater photographer, while making an inventory ahead of the creation of a new nature reserve in the islands, the University of Gothenburn reported Monday.

The reticulated dragonet is similar to its more common Swedish relatives the common dragonet and spotted dragonet, researchers say.

Dragonets are found from the Weather Islands in the north down the coasts of the southern North Sea, in the Irish Sea, from southwestern Ireland down to Portugal, and in the western Mediterranean, researchers said, but it is unusual for a new species of fish to be discovered in Sweden.
