PILGRIMAGE by NICK COBURN PHILLIPS
Clear

Almost as if on a pilgrimage these ‘striped eel catfish’ swarm over underwater meadows grazing in large schools using whisker-like ‘barbels’ to search and stir the sand incessantly for crustaceans, mollusks, worms, and sometimes fish.

Catfish ~ just like sharks ~ have evolved long ampullary canals along their electro-sensory organs. These deep pits were once termed ‘ampullae of Lorenzini’ but now this term is reserved just for the sharks.

As a Marine Scientist, Underwater Photographer, Wildlife Conservation FilmMaker & emerging Explorer ~ Nicks’ recent film “Colours of the Gulf” documented the plight of whale sharks and other marine life in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill.
