A scientific study by the Universidad Michoacana of San Nicolás de Hidalgo, in Mexico and the Ministry of Environment of Ecuador, through the Galapagos National Park, confirmed the existence of two new species in the Galapagos Islands and the world.
This is the Scorpaenodes sp, a fish that measures up to 10 centimeters length, which lives in the rocky reef area of some islands.
The other species is the Gobiomuros sp., of about 25 centimeters long which inhabits in coastal bodies of water fed by fresh water, in the San Cristobal island.
The Minister stressed the importance of the finding. In his discretion, this discovery represents a breakthrough for science, as two new species probably endemic to the Galapagos Islands are reported.
