GOTHENBURG, Sweden — Reticulated dragonet have been found in Väderöarna – “Weather Islands” – off the west coast of Sweden. It is not often that a new species of fish is discovered in Sweden.
Lars-Ove Loo is the underwater photographer who has captured the fish on film. He saw it while making an inventory ahead of the creation of a new nature reserve in the islands. This was in August 2010, 19 meters below the surface of the sea south of Lyngö in the southern Väderöarna (58° 32.554′ N, 11° 05.373′ E).
