The Washington Post article Posted March 05, 2019 05:31:49The fish, named Aquarius, was a tad shy of a quarter-pound when he was caught by a pair of aquarists in a Washington state lake in August.
He was found about 10 days later in a waterway about 100 miles south of Seattle.
It was the first fish ever caught by the Aquaris team of divers, and the first ever caught with a live fish.
“It’s just a fun little fish,” said Aquarius’s owner, Steve Jones, who has been using Aquaris’s video cameras for the past four years.
“We’re trying to keep it fresh and keep the little bit of it alive, and that’s why we have a little bit, and we’re just hoping to catch it and keep it.”
Jones, who said he and his wife have owned Aquaris since 2012, has been a fisherman for more than a decade and was not involved in the capture.
Aquarius is about the size of a grapefruit.
He said it would be impossible to eat a fish the size he caught.
The fish was captured by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, which has a dedicated Aquarius fishing team.
They were in the waters of Washington’s Salmon Bay in August and were in a deep hole about 1,400 feet (305 meters) below the surface, where they had been living since being caught by divers.
Jones said he was about two miles (3 kilometers) from the entrance of the deep hole when the video camera snapped the video of Aquarius and his friend, who were about 5 to 6 feet (1 to 2 meters) apart.
“He was probably about half the size I am,” Jones said.
The group, who have been with Aquaris for four years, had been fishing for the last two years.
Jones caught two fish, which were about 1 to 2 feet (30 to 40 centimeters) long, and a smaller fish, about a foot (30 centimeters) in length.
The fish, called a bivalve, is a fish with fins that are made of cartilage, similar to a small dog’s tail.
The other fish, a salamander, is about half as long and is called a pike.
Aquaris uses live fish to measure the depth of water in which they fish, and they use the fish to determine the size.
The team, which includes a pair from the University of Washington, used a 3-D camera to capture the video and record it with a camera underwater, a method called depth camera, or D-Cams.
Aquaria uses the video to measure its fish depth using a system called a depth map, which calculates the fish’s distance from the camera.
Aquarium officials said they were able to capture Aquarius because of its size and its ability to survive in the deep water of the bay.
Jones, a native of Hawaii, said he has been working with Aquarius since he was a child, so he had some familiarity with the fish.
“It’s kind of like a cross between a tuna and a marlin,” Jones told The Associated Press.
“The only difference is that it’s alive and it’s got a nice head.”
Jones said Aquaris is the first caught with live fish in the Pacific Northwest.
Aquarians, a group of fishermen, have been collecting fish for more years than they have in their lifetime, according to the Aquarians’ website.
“We are not looking for a new species, but we are looking for the best fish to use as bait,” Jones wrote on the Aquaria website.
Jones has not yet posted the video in a public way, and his aquarist friends said it will take some time for them to post the video.
“I hope that people will take it in the spirit that it was intended,” Jones, 62, said.
The video shows Aquarius trying to get into the deep fish trap that was used to catch the fish, while holding his mouth open to make sure that it wasn’t going to swallow him. “
But it was nice to be able to catch a live one, and it was a good opportunity for us to share the love with the world.”

“That’s just the kind of guy he is,” Jones says.
