Recommendations for Costa Rica Travel

Costa Rica Fish Species

Blue Marlin – Off Shore
The largest billfish trophy. It is not uncommon to see this huge fish (up to 1800lbs.) heave itself skyward in a seemingly inexhaustible display of strength.

Sailfish – Off Shore
This beautiful billfish has the largest dorsal fin, resembling a sail. This fish is noted for its fighting ability and often spends as much of the battle in the air as in the water.

Wahoo (Ono) – In-Shore
Wahoo is a gamefish known for its long hard runs at speeds up to 45 mph. Because of the limited number of wahoo caught, it is considered a trophy fish.

Barracuda – In-Shore
The Barracuda nicknamed the “Tiger of the Sea,” is an inquisitive, aggressive predator. It is found offshore and inshore wherever smaller fish are to be found. Inshore it provides the angler with an aerial display, often jumping out of the water two to three times its own length.

Amberjack – Off Shore
What the Amberjack may lack in long runs and jumping is easily overlooked by its super strength. The pull of this fish is a sheer delight to the angler and this fish makes a beautiful trophy. The gold and purple vary from locale to locale.

Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) (Dorado) – Off Shore
Found in warm waters worldwide, the Dolphin is among the most colorful of the gamefish. Its hard fighting and gold-green and blue colors make this fish most popular. The male has a very distinctive blunt head.

Yellowfin Tuna (Ahi) – Off Shore
This member of the tuna family, although not the largest, is among the world’s hardest running fish. It attains weights in excess of 200 lbs. A long battle can be expected from this freight train.

Roosterfish – In-Shore
The roosterfish is a superb light tackle gamefish and a member of the Carangidae family of jacks, so named for the comb of long dorsal fin spines that extend far above the body of the fish. It has been exploited at a local level because of its excellent quality as a food fish and is marketed fresh.

Red Snapper – In-Shore
The red snapper is one of the most valuable snappers for anglers and commercial fishermen; as a result, it has been severely overfished in American waters and is now closely protected. A member of the Lutjanidae family of snapper, it is one of the most highly coveted of all reef fish and is almost always the most expensive fish per pound on the market. The white meat of the red snapper is superb and is marketed fresh.

Spanish Mackerel – In-Shore
The Spanish mackerel is a popular gamefish and a good food fish of the Scombridae family. It is also of significant commercial interest, and whole fish are frequently used as bait for big-game fishing.

Rainbow Runner – Off Shore
A member of the Carangidae family of jacks, the rainbow runner does not look like other jacks because it is a much slimmer, more streamlined fish. It is also an excellent food fish with firm white flesh, marketed fresh and salted/dried. In Japan, the rainbow runner is cooked with a special sauce or eaten raw and is considered a delicacy.

Snook – In-Shore
Snook, in general, are distinctive in appearance, with a characteristic protruding lower jaw and a particularly prominent black lateral line running from the gill cover to the tail.
