發現滅絕魚種

打工都跟魚有關

但這些都沒有讓他打消與「魚」連結的念頭,專門學校畢業後,他找的打工都跟魚有關。從水族館、水族用品店、魚鋪,到壽司店都有。

畫魚畫到開畫展

尤其是在壽司店打工期間,他繪製店裡壽司所用魚類本尊的插畫,宣傳了壽司也宣傳自己,讓他又接獲其他魚插畫的打工機會,最後不僅參加了紀實性電視節目,還到水族館開插畫展。並從從2000年便戴起招牌藍、黃色的「無斑箱魨帽」,在綜藝節目上用淺白的語言介紹各種魚類知識,逐漸打出知名度,並獲得「魚君」這個稱號,2006年獲得東京海洋大學聘請,擔任客座副教授,2015年更獲頒名譽博士。

而這間大學正是東京商船大學和東京水產大學合併而成的,當年無緣入校,如今擔任教職,證明努力堅持終會有好事發生。

日皇感謝他貢獻

值得一提的是,魚君將從小練就的繪畫技術和魚類知識用於魚類圖鑑,讓他筆下的魚生動可愛且專業。2010年他接受京都大學教授中坊徹次委託繪製秋田大麻哈魚,特地向漁民購買近緣種的紅大麻哈魚。

在眾多魚中,他發現山梨縣西湖寄來的魚具有秋田大麻哈魚的特徵,後來經中坊教授進行DNA分析,證實就是1940年在秋田縣田澤湖滅絕的秋田大麻哈魚,成為日本重新發現滅絕魚種的首例,同為魚類學家的日皇明仁也特別在生日記者會上感謝魚君的貢獻。

至於魚君發現的秋田大麻哈魚,後來透過人工繁殖的方式正逐步復育,研究人員正努力未來能讓魚而回歸原始的棲息地。
