its quite a strange fish, but mand such strange fish are caught in our waters that are not indigenous.  a single fish caught does not mean that we'll start having such fish in our seas, it may have been just a mistake the fish did while migrating.  however if repeated catches persist it may be concluded that the fish is visitn#ing our seas on purpose, probably due to tropicalization.

the same has happened with puffer fish

I remember when I caught the 1st s cornet fish. I did nt knew what they were. Now a days in less then 3 years we keep seeing them around even tiny ones of 4 cm. Last one we saw where in the sout with a lenght of over 1.5mtr nt the one before was in sliema with a size of 10cm

Once I was talking with a guy and he told me that 2 years before I had caught my 1st one he had used to catch

The majority are due to global shippping movements. When ships offload containers they take on ballast (sea water) and this includes marine life that is sucked in by their pumps. When they reach a foreign port which could be thousands of miles away and take on containers or a load like oil etc, they pump out their water ballast along with the marine life!

Another new fish species spotted this week near Delimara Power Plant is the Atlantic Tripletail (Lobotes Surinamensis). The fish can be found floating like a tree leave with other floating objects when young.

This is the fish:


This is a pic found on the net. My friend is going to send me a pic of this fish. I will post it later.

My fish instinct, me being a spearo is

'Yahoo, more species of fish to shoot, so diferent techniques to adapt'.

But if I think twice I ask myself, 'Is this beneficial to our seas, or is disturbing the natural balance?'

I didnt refer to the one on the pic  :) ...... but growing up to 19KG is a nice size. I've googled them and they seem to do a nice fish dish. Hope they invade us like the cudas did  ;D ............ (forsi imisna xi wahda gorg  :D)
