Hello Coral listers,
I'm working with the Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental
Resources on the development of a Spanish (regulated) fish guide for
their enforcement officers. We are collecting excellent resolution
photos of fish out of the water because they are more realistic for the
rangers to learn from and use when inspecting fishers' catches. We have
many so far but I'm still searching for the following. We have already
searched the DNER files, Fishbase.org and Google images and I'm in the
process of reaching the photographers. If you can facilitate these named
below, please write to me directly. It will greatly serve the coral reef
and fisheries conservation goals of Puerto Rico.
1) Scomberomorus regalis- Cero; Sierra
2) Istiophorus platypterus or albicans; Sailfish - Pez vela.
3) Tetrapturus pfluegeri; Longbill spearfish; aguja picuda.
4) Epinephelus guttatus- Red Hind- Mero Cabrilla
5) Epinephelus striatus- Nassau Grouper; Mero Cherna
