A Fish Caught in Time

An account of the rediscovery of the coelocanth - told with very enthusiastic input of the museum professional behind it. Looking for unique fishes for her London Natural History Museum; she had a standing order with a fisherman to give her any unusual catch. When he showed up with a prehistoric looking giant she knew it was unique, but as not able to preserve all she wanted - and a subsequent scientist spent the rest of his life tracking the fish down.
