Antillean Fish Guide

This booklet is meant as a guide to identify the fishes and turtles of the reefs of the Netherlands Antilles (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten,).

Those in need of detailed information on fishes may use "Caribbean Reef Fishes", written by John E. RANDALL who visited our islands several times. This guide provides a brief description of the fishes, the  vernacular names in English as well as Papiamento, and the scientific names as presented in Randall's book.
