One of the best known places for fish-watching is the Caribbean.

And a special place in the Caribbean is Aruba, beause of its richness of fish species and the ease of practicing this wild-watching, included birds (Birds of Aruba).

Between  11 to 25 November 2012,  9 to 23 May and November 2013 , May 2017 we were (Antonio Silveira) on the Caribbean island of Aruba, where we had the opportunity to make some observations of ichthyofauna specially in  Malmok and Boca Catalina beaches.
