There are far to many types of fish from Mauritius to list. When you are out diving or snorkeling in the Indian Ocean you will be sure to see plenty of colourful fish of all sizes. This is what makes visiting Mauritius such a great experience. Big game fishing is also a popular past time and if out fishing you may catch Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Dorado, Giant Trevally and Sharks, including Tiger, Blue or Mako sharks.
Fish commonly seen when diving or snorkeling can include:
Blue Stripe Snapper
Big Eyed Yellow Snapper
Palette Sturgeon Fish
Striped Large-eye Bream
Sergeant Major Fish
Bluespine Unicorn Fish
Blue and Yellow Fusilier
Of course this is just a brief list, and the further out you go, the more you will see bigger fish, such as Tuna, Barracuda, as well as Rays, Octopus and Turtles.
There are plenty of dive sites in Mauritius and most resorts will have a dive centre either on site or nearby.
