Gogo Fish- The Story of the WA State Fossil Emblem

Hard Back

Imagine, splitting a rock apart with a hammer and discovering the complete skeleton of 375 million-year-old fish inside. The fish John Long discovered turned out to be a completely new and unique species, the Gogo fish. This book is an exciting and informative introduction to fossils and the fascinating research work of museums.

In July 1986, a 375 million-year old fossil fish was discovered in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The campaign of a Perth primary school helped to make this fish the Western Australian State Fossil Emblem. This is the story of Dr John Long's discovery of the Gogo fish, the campaign, and a glimpse into the fascinating world of a Devonian reef.
