A hitherto unknown deep-sea fish species of the scaleless smooth-heads (Alepocephalidae) has now for the first time been described and published by scientists at Bergen Museum and Northeast Fisheries Science Center in Massachusetts, USA.
In March this year, more than 8122 visitors entered the exhibition halls of Bergen Museum. The Natural History Collections saw the highest increase in visitor numbers with 6129 visitors. This is the best ever month since the Museum started keeping records in 1996.
