R12 Tropical Fish
Issue Date: September 9, 2008
On September 9, 2008, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued eight 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 Banded Butterflyfish, the Damsel,the Pink Skunk Clownfish, the Beau
Gregory Damsel, the Porkfish, the Goatfish, the Royal Gramma and the Blue Striped Blenny. Featuring artwork by noted artist Gordon Drummond, the stamps show eight of the most colorful tropical
fish found in the world's oceans. Each fish is being issued on its own sheet of 20 stamps.
