The Coelacanth is a prehistoric fish we thought had been extinct 65 million years ago. Then one day in the 1930s some African fisherman caught one. An international scientific frenzy ensued, rewards were offered and more were caught--every institution wanted one for themselves. Then one day somebody figured out that we were studying the Coelacanth to death. Today the approximately 1,000 fish still alive are protected.
Me and every other school kid in Vancouver remembers the eerie giant fish hanging in a tank of formaldehyde at the Vancouver Aquarium. It was this experience that inspired me to make this mock tin of Diced Coelacanth. What does the Mesozoic era taste like, you may wonder. Don't get put off by the smell of formaldehyde--tuck in and find out for yourself!
