Origin and Characteristics

“These fish came from a QM exclusive partner collector in West Africa.  It has been some time since we’ve had fish from this region due to many factors.  Things like political instability, poor area infrastructure and infrequent & irregularly available air travel to and from these nations has traditionally made trying to source aquatic livestock from this area extremely risky for both fish and people.
