When is a fish not a fish?

When Lucy Dugan wrote about ‘fish’ she described a dad’s affection for his daughter as ‘the catch of the day’.

When Nicole Mickle brought her ‘fish’ into life like bronze relief the expression was just as obscure.

So here she is, a little ‘fish’ at the head of Busselton Jetty, gazing out into the ocean onto the playground she cherished.

Perhaps she’s not a fish after all but a ‘selkie’ who’ll one day head back out to sea, breaking hearts as she goes, never to return again.
