In October 2012 we conducted our last big adventure, a two weeks trip through Romania to collect fishes and mollusks with our colleague Ion from the DDNI.

From Berlin it was only 2000 km to go…

After 2.5 days of driving we finally arrived at the DDNI field station near Babadag and immediately started to collect in the nearby Razim Lake with Ion and his colleagues.
Beach-seining with a 200 m net – only possible with the help of a few strong guys.
Of course all the vouchered individuals were documented with live coloration.
Searching for Benthophilus nudus among the hundreds of gobies at this place in the Danube River.
At the end of the trip we had filled quite a number of barrels & boxes with fishes and Katharina collected a nice set of the Danubian mollusk fauna.
