R12 Tropical Fish
Issue Date: June 24, 2008
On June 24, 2008, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues two new stamps each on its own sheet featuring colorful Tropical Fish. The world's tropical waters teem with spectacular marine life
whose beauty continually delights those fortunate enough to observe, firsthand, nature's breathtaking display. Many tropical fish and other sea creatures, however, thrive in home aquariums that
re-create the natural habitat of tropical marine life. Aquariums are not only enjoyed by hobbyists, but are also useful research tools for marine biologists, who study these amazing creatures
for various scientific purposes. It is the clear, tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean, however, that are truly a diver's paradise. Adventurers explore majestic coral reefs as they swim among
the various species of exotic tropical fish native to this spectacular marine habitat, including the Threadfin Butterflyfish and the Copperband Butterflyfish. Featuring artwork by noted artist
Gordon Drummond, the stamps show two of the most colorful tropical fish found in the world's oceans: the Threadfin Butterflyfish and the Copperband Butterflyfish.
