Newly Found Fish Species Named After Obama

Scientists have named a small maroon and gold fish species, which was discovered 300 feet deep in the waters off Kure Atoll in the Pacific Ocean, after U.S. President Barack Obama.
•    The fish, of the genus Tosanoides, was named in honour of Mr. Obama for his commitment to protecting nature through the expansion of the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, researchers said.
•    It was discovered in June this year during a research trip to Kure, the world’s northernmost atoll. 
•    The fish is found only within the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument.
•    Researchers confirmed that the fish represented a new species, the first member of the genus Tosanoides found outside of the waters off Japan.
•    This is not the first fish to be named after Mr. Obama. A species of darters found only in the Duck River and the Buffalo River in U.S. was named Etheostoma obama in 2012.
