By now most of you have seen the contest in American Currents, where you create a common fish name which is so compelling that
everybody will want to be sure it never goes extinct. Well, I thought I would have more fun with BAD fish names - these fishes are
surely marked for obliteration! Here are a few:

Squalid Squawfish
Leech Sucker
Der Fuhrer's Fundulus
Nagging Hagfish

There are a couple more which I can't remember just now, but let's hear from the rest of you on this important topic!
