Here's what you say about us...

The Blowfish is a Yorkshireman, Halifax-bred, the son of a vet who catered, James Herriot style, to the local farming community. This heritage, and an early exposure to the Great White Shark, thanks to a viewing of Jaws, led Blowfish to become a marine biologist. Not just a profession, but an all-consuming passion ever since. He's also a qualified dive master - swimming with sharks remains an especial fascination. An accomplished bass player, Blowfish is one of the very few, perhaps the only fully-signed up heavy metal marine biologist on the planet.

A lively, sumptuous cornucopia of all things oceanic. Who knew a squid could fly, or that hagfish drown their prey in slime?
Jonathan Balcombe, author of What a Fish Knows

A marine marvel... Tom Hird applies his boundless enthusiasm to give us a smorgasbord of bite-sized oceanic and fishy facts.
