    Default Variety of Fish found here in the DR

    Over the years i've seen a lot of strange and colorful fish here on the island. Some of them are brought to the restaurants by local fishermen to sale. Others are caught by friends and acquaintances. Of these pictures here, the ones on Cabarete beach has been from local fishermen looking to sell, but the very colorful fish--including the eels--they have been caught by a father and son team from Austria--Peter & Gerald; we travel and race motorcycles around the island together and have shot many record setting, reckless, time-traveling Youtube videos together.

    Great display of fish! They're almost too beautiful to eat. What a great aquarium they'd make.

    all those pictures... pichardo, is that you?

    and seriously, "slippery dick"? i am afraid to google images of that one...

    my dad would love you so much. he really likes fish and cannot wait to come here one day and eat all those specimens. what i would like to do is to learn how to fillet those buggers. i cannot do it as well as professionals i leave too much meat on the bones and too much bones in the meat.
