Coelacanth : Amazing ancient fish-handed

Fish World | Coelacanth : Amazing ancient fish-handed | Until 70 years ago, evolutionists have a fish fossil that they believe to be the "ancestor of land animals." However, the development of science all evolutionist claims about these fish.

Mention of scientific information, the coelacanth fish habitat is at depths greater than 180 meters with a maximum temperature of sea water of 18 degrees Celsius. On June 27, 2007 meeting, the ROV was recorded coelacanth housing in the mouth of the lava rock cave under the sea
The experts refer to as ancient fish coelacanth fish. The reason, the fish was supposed to already exist on the earth since the time of Devonia about 380 million years. So far, its shape does not change the alias has not changed!

The absence of fossil forms of transition between fish and amphibians is a fact also acknowledged by evolutionists to date. However, until 70 years ago, fossil fish called the coelacanth was accepted as an intermediate form between fish and land animals. Evolutionists claim that the coelacanth, which was estimated at 410 million years, is a transitional form with a primitive lung, a developed brain, digestive and circulatory systems ready for use on land, and even a primitive walking mechanism . Interpretation of evolution is accepted as a truth which is not undisputed in the scientific world until the late 1930s.
To date, there were two living species of coelacanth found Komoro Coelacanth, Coelacanth Latimeria chalumnae and Sulawesi (Manado), Latimeria menadoensis.

Until 1938, the fish are closely related to lung fish is considered to have been extinct since the late Cretaceous period, about 65 million years. How long a living coelacanth was caught by shark nets prior Chalumna River estuary, South Africa in December this year. Trawler captain who are interested in seeing these strange fish, send it to a museum in the city of East London, which was led by Mrs. Marjorie Courtney-Latimer. A iktiologis (fish expert) local, Dr. JLB Smith was later to describe the fish and to publish his article in the journal Nature in 1939. He named the species of fish Latimeria chalumnae new to commemorate the museum's curator and the location of the discovery of the fish.
Find the location where the ancient fish that lived during the next twelve years later to get the waters of the Indian Ocean Comoros islands to the west such as habitat, where several hundred people are estimated to live oceans at depths of over 150 m. Apart from the islands until the 1990s a few individuals are caught in the waters of Mozambique, Madagascar and South Africa. But everything is still considered part of the population more or less the same.

In 1998, sixty years after the discovery of the coelacanth a living fossil Comoros, a king of sea fish caught in fishing nets in the waters of the island of Manado Tua, North Sulawesi. This fish has long been known by local fishermen, but was not known to exist there by the world of science. King of the Sea Fish Comoros coelacanths physically similar, with differences in color. The king of the sea is brown, while the Comoros coelacanth steel blue.
The king of sea fish is then sent to an American researcher who lived in Manado, Mark Erdmann, with two colleagues, RL Caldwell and Moh. Kasim Moosa of LIPI. This discovery was then published in the journal Nature. So now, people know that there is a second population of coelacanth, a separate cross the Indian Ocean and the Indonesian islands as far west of about 10,000 km. Later, based on analysis of mitochondrial DNA and isolation of populations, some researchers Indonesia and France proposed a king fish of the sea as a new species Latimeria menadoensis.

Two years later, the group also discovered that coelacanths live in the waters of marine protected areas (MPAs) St. Lucia in South Africa. People then realize that there is still a possibility of coelacanth populations elsewhere, including in other parts of the archipelago, as these fish live in isolation in the depths of the sea, especially around volcanic islands. To date, the taxonomic status of a new coelacanth is still debated.

In May 2007, an Indonesian fisherman caught a coelacanth off the coast of northern Sulawesi. This fish has a size of 131 centimeters long with a weight of 51 kg when captured.

The most obvious is the uniqueness of the existence of a pair of pectoral fins, pelvic fins, an anal fin (lower back) and a dorsal fin that does not mix with the body, but also exceed the legs as a human hand.

To stay in position, move the coelacanth fin belly and chest like a paddle fin. Forward motion comes from the anal fin and the dorsal back.

There are allegations, the coelacanth can move backward, but there was no advertising on the truth. To be sure, as said Agus, the coelacanth can move the upper jaw like the lower jaw open.

However, December 22, 1938, a very interesting discovery in the Indian Ocean. A fish of the coelacanth family, previously presented as a transitional form that had disappeared 70 million years, was captured alive! Undoubtedly, the discovery of the coelacanth fish "live" which gives a great blow to evolutionists. Evolutionist paleontologist, JLB Smith, said he would not be surprised if you encounter a dinosaur still alive. 28 In the following years, 200 tail coelacanth was caught in many different places around the world
