Dear FishBase Forum users,

Welcome to our new and improved site!

In the past, spammers have succeeded in making the forum unusable. Thus, in our aspiration to keep the site as simple as possible yet functional, we came up with this new version protected by a captcha system. We have checked and cleaned the database, keeping all good postings and pictures. However, note that the record numbers are tentative, we may need to change them in the coming months, and that the site is without registration at the moment. Please bear with us as we continuously develop this site to maximize service to fish enthusiasts all over the world. Feel free to comment on this version and make suggestions for improvements.

Lastly, we would like to clarify that the forum is for technical comments and inquiries that need scientific responses from experts in our team or other entities/groups that wish to share their knowledge on the subject at hand. If you wish to express your thoughts about our website and/or provide comments on our work, which don't necessarily need a response, then you may use our Guestbook for that purpose.

Enjoy the forum.

Our very best regards.

Looking to identify this eel/fish
Posted on: 24/01/2015 05:29:12

A friend of mine, while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta, saw this fish wash ashore. She assumed it had been injured by a boat. She also claimed to see more of these type fish in the surf. Any assistance in identifying this fish will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

which fish? (Hook Island)
Posted on: 15/01/2015 03:50:41

Can anyone help me identify this fish? It was very curious, approaching us just off Hook Island (Whitsundays). About 50cm. I tried to use the key from the Australian Museum, but didn't get anywhere. Thanks :-)

Lutjanus synagris? from Gulf of Mexico
Posted on: 14/01/2015 05:50:31

On the detailed list of fish for the Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve on the Yucatan Peninsula's northern coast, the attached fish photo best fits Lutjanus synagris. However, the yellow lines are too many, too irregular, and maybe the anal fin has too many rays. It was caught in an estuary, brackish water from mangroves, about 6 inches long (15cm)
