Species of Fish

When the Spaniards first arrived in the early 1500’s they named the country “Panama” from the native Kuna Indian’s language which means “Abundance of Fish” or “Place of Many Fish”. And we would definitely have to agree! There are over 50 species of game fish here to be caught and over 250 World Records have been caught in Panamanian waters! Other than the Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, and Roosterfish that we already mentioned…a few of our more frequently caught Panama fish species are:


Cubera Snapper      Dogtooth Snapper         Mexican Barred Pargo       Amberjack             Jack Crevalle               Horse-eye Jack           Bluefin Trevalle    Blackfin Trevalle            


Almaco Jack         White Tip Shark        Rainbow Runner                 Wahoo                                 Oriental Bonito                       African Pompano               Pacific Snook
