Red Handfish Exhibit at IMAS

The critically endangered Red Handfish is only found in Tasmania, in two small patches of rocky reef in Fredrick Henry Bay, southeast of Hobart. But there are only an estimated 100 individuals left in the wild.

Habitat loss, pollution and siltation, coastal development, human disturbance from boating and diving, introduced species and climate change are just some of the threats they face.

In this exhibition, you’ll discover more about this quirky fish and how the Handfish Conservation Project team is working with citizen scientists and others to save it.

Due to COVID-safe requirements, bookings are required.
