5 thoughts on “Complete Species List

  1. This is a really impressive collection. Some of the pictures towards the end didn’t load. And it would be interesting to have a comparison (ruler or gauge) to get an idea of there size. Really enjoyed checking your site out! Thanks.

  2. That is a great lifelist! I can only wish to catch some of those species. There are a couple edits I would make however. The fringeheads should be grouped with the blennies, the dottyback and the sunrise perch should be grouped with the seabasses, the roosterfish should be in “others”, the soapfish and the black sea bass should be with the groupers, (but bass is a bit of a broad term to begin with), the Australian herring should be in “others”, the butterfly whiptail, west Australian butterfish, and threadtail breams (forktail and redspine) should be grouped in a new “threadtail bream” section (Nemipteridae), the stripey, moonlighter, both sweeps and Australian mado should go with the chubs, the “sargo” in the spinefoot section (salema) should go to the porgies, as should the saddled seabream, the flagtail should go in “others” or be in a new section, as should the striped beakfish/knifejaw, the squirrelfish should be grouped with the soldierfish and sweepers, the bigeye should be in “others” or be in a new section, the moorish idol should be in “others”, the hairtail and monkeyface eel should be in “others”, the striper should be in “saltwater basses” (again, a very loose term) or be in a new section with the european seabass and the other fish in the genus Morone, and the blue devil should be in others. This is based on phylogenetic relationships. Hopefully this helps.

    • Hi Sky, thank you for visiting my blog! As noted in the lifelist introduction, the species are organized based on morphology, and not phylogenetic relationship. I realize that this creates categories of fish that are grouped from different families but for pure identification purposes, I find physical characteristics sufficient for organization on my lifelist. I don’t intend on changing my method of organization anytime soon, but thank you for your detailed input!
