Title: Identification of Fish caught in Maltese Waters
Post by: DJS on December 04, 2007, 13:26:57 CET
Hi Nick

I've noticed that recently many of us have been posting photographs of different fish caught in Maltese waters inshore and offshore and we now have quite a collection of different species of fish.  Just a suggestion, but would it be useful for the site to have a section entitled "Fish caught in Maltese waters" with photographs accompanied with the Maltese / English names?

There are many fish that I've heard of but never caught in Malta and still have no idea what they look like. It would also be useful for newcomers / visitors to the islands' who may not be able to identify fish like Tracna / Weaver fish which, if caught, can give a nasty sting.

Anyway.... just food for thought after having seen a fish wallchart of whilst eating out at a restaurant recently!

That's why there is that topic I made. There are all fish together with their Maltese/English names together with their pics! DJS all you have to do is search the particular fish here :

Some of them are not so common. So you may have never even heard about them, but their name exists in Maltese, so I had to put them too.
What has to be done is when members in the forum post their pictures they put their Maltese/English name with them for the benefit of others.
