When Juliet says to Romeo:

What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet

she wants us to believe names do not matter. But names of fish do matter and became a topic of national discussion earlier this year when a study showed how often the fish used in restaurants and markets around the country were mislabeled. In this episode of UnderH2O, we take a look at fish names on the coral reef. Common names, scientific names, and Hawaiian names (or names in any other language) are all used for different purposes and all serve a need.

New episodes of UnderH2O are released every other Tuesday. We'll do our best to answer any questions you might have in the comments, so please ask away! Follow us on Twitter @underH2Oshow and visit www.HDunderH2O.com for more information.
