メダカ ・ Killifish

2015.10.27 (Tue)


Measuring less than 4cm long, medaka (killifish) are small light brown fish with white underbellies. With the exception of Hokkaido, these small fish inhabit ponds, marshes, small rivers, and paddy fields all across Japan and Eastern Asia. Until about twenty years ago, medaka were essentially always expected to be found in the rivers and irrigation channels. These fish were recently sighted in a small area of Yurihama’s Ayame Pond. That area was turned into the Medaka Amusement Pond- a space restored as a natural habitat for the waterfront’s plant and animal life.
