types of fish in los suenosEvery fish in Los Suenos is uniquely shaped, a collection of brightly colored fins, scales and tails. The Central Pacific boasts some of the world’s most beautiful breeds, and anglers often wish to identify them all.

Doing this requires an understanding of basic anatomy, starting with body types.

Fusiform: medium-boned fish with pointed heads, forked tails and evenly scaled fins. Consider Mackerels and Tuna.

Streamlined: massive fish with ovoid bodies and long fins. Consider Marlins and Swordfish.


Filiform: long-bodied fish with extended snouts and bullet-like heads. Consider Pipefish and Pikes.

Vermiform: short-framed fish with thin scales and rounded heads. Consider Minnows and Sardines.

Recognizing the different body types of Los Suenos fish will help anglers more quickly identify specific breeds during their charter trips. It will also allow them to choose appropriate tackle options, adapting to different shapes, sizes and snout lengths.
