Exploring the Freshwaters of Equatorial Guinea: Land of Many Fishes (and the Worst Cocktail Ever)

Monday, April 8, 2024

6:00 PM-7:00 PM

With dense canopies, soaring mountains and bubbling streams, Equatorial Guinea is composed of two wonderfully biodiversity-rich locations — the mainland Río Muni on the west coast of Central Africa and its islands, Bioko and Annobón.

In February 2023, an international team of scientists led by Mark Sabaj teamed up with local scientists and students to explore Bioko and the mainland for freshwater fishes. The trip yielded discoveries of fish species new and old in this small yet biodiverse country.

This event is hosted by Mark Sabaj, PhD, Collection Manager of Fishes at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University
