In the nearly five years since the Britannica Blog was founded, we have published more than 4,000 posts, and as the dog days of summer are upon us we’ve decided to do something we’ve never done before—take a vacation. So, until August 15, this will be our last post, as we’ve decided to go fishin’, but we thought we might go out with a bang, with some awesome imagery of fishes from Britannica’s treasury. Enjoy, and we’ll see you in 10 days.
