It seems that this fish is getting more popular and is being caught more frequently, yesterday I saw 2 which were caught in Marsamxetto Harbour, in 2 different places

This is very interesting. The triple tail is a species that we are familiar with when marlin fishing on the coral sea here. We usually find schools of them taking shelter under floating logs or any thing for that matter. If you care to check it out l was able to film lots of activity under this one FAD (fish aggregation device) we came across last year. The first school of fish you see at 1.08 is what we call triple tale also.

you may be aware of large container/ cargo ships dumping balest water all over the world, and in this water they carry many different introduced species to new waters...some times they are friend...but sometimes they are foe.

One case over here is the recent introduction of the 'crown of thorns' starfish which has overpopulated the native species and destroying the native fauna of our bay.

MCFS San Lucian when u need live fish let us know. If we can help we will be more than willing to oblige...........And I hope that I am speaking in the name of all forum members on this one!

Sorry if sometimes I take too long to reply or participate in the forum, but I'm up to my neck in work, especially now that the scholastic year has started.

I really appreciate your offers and will certainly let you know when I need fish for the display aquaria. Unfortunately the place has a very limited space which does not allow me to increase the number of aquaria. I would have loved to set up one exclusively for tripletails as they are very interesting fish. I am still wondering about where to put the one which was donated by Spitec because it is a voracious predator and must be kept with fish of the same temperament.

Regarding their recent increase in sightings of tripletails, I am not aware of any ongoing studies about this but would be interesting to investigate. Maybe a university student will start doing some studies. MCFS would be glad to help.
