Scientists at the University of New South Wales have released a new study into the world’s rainbow fish.
Key points: Researchers studied the species in the wild, and in captivity and at a commercial fish market in New South WalesThe fish was found to be a unique species in its own right The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, shows that the rainbow fish can survive in very different environments The rainbow fish is a new species in Australia, and one of the largest fish in the world.
The rainbow fish was discovered in the waters off the coast of New Zealand in the 1970s.
It is one of a number of new species found in New Zealand waters.
Researchers at the university found the rainbow trout, which has the longest tail of any freshwater fish, is a unique freshwater fish.
“We found this fish to be unique in that it can survive both in water that is relatively low in oxygen and in water where it has very high concentrations of carbon dioxide,” Associate Professor Peter McClean, who led the research, said.
“It has an extraordinary ability to grow in the water and it also has an amazing ability to live in a variety of different conditions.”
He said rainbow trout can grow up to 50cm long.
He said the species can be found all over New Zealand, from the southern tip of New England to the northern tip of the Pacific.
“Its very well adapted to being in all different environments,” he said.
The researchers found that rainbow trout had an extraordinary adaptation to being at the bottom of the ocean, and were able to survive both low oxygen levels and high concentrations in carbon dioxide.
“These rainbow trout have a very unusual metabolism, they use a very unique metabolic pathway to grow, so they can grow to a size of 20cm and they can survive very different conditions than other freshwater fish,” Associate Prof McClean said.
It also seems that rainbow fish are adapted to different habitats.
“They have a really interesting metabolism that allows them to survive different conditions in different environments, such as high CO 2 levels and low oxygen.”
The other important thing that we saw is that these rainbow trout are able to live up to 70 days at sea, and that’s just about a day off their daily feeding schedule.
“It is important to remember that the fish are also unique to New Zealand.”

It’s really important to understand that we have the unique capability of managing these fish, and it’s important to recognise that they’re also in New Zones.”
