It's steel blue and is the only fish still in existence whose species has not evolved for 350 million years. It's called the "coelacanth". It was thought to have become extinct 70 million years ago. Only fossils remained, which paleontologists studied at the beginning of this century. In fact, the coelacanth resembles the fish which worked their way onto dry earth and from which all vertebrates descend ... including man. From 1952 until now, we follow the remarkable story of the coelacanth and the passion it has unleashed on all continents.
