Flora & fauna pictures and identification for species observed in Baja California and mainland Mexico fishing waters

Here's a motley collection of photos showing all kinds of living things observed in Mexico's sportfishing vacation waters by the readers of this website. Represented here are birds, corals and sea fans, crabs, crustaceans, mammals, sea stars, shells, squids and octopi, urchins and sea cucumbers, and a miscellaneous category listing such things as scorpions, giant kelp, and sea worms.

NOTE: Do you have an interesting photo of a new fish species, or other interesting plant, animal, or natural phenomenon observed in Mexican waters? If you would like to submit it for this section, please contact us.

The submitted photos found on these pages are a valuable resource for anglers and vacationers traveling in Mexican resort areas in Baja California and on the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of mainland Mexico. They will help in species identification of many beach observations and with things that may be seen in the water while fishing from a boat.

Game fish and other fish species that may be observed or caught while fishing in Mexico are not listed on this page, but can be found on our very extensive fish picture page.

Common English flora and fauna names are linked in blue to their respective photo and species information pages.

Spanish names as used in Mexico, or in some cases, literal translations of the English where no Spanish name is known, are shown in green.

Scientific (Latin), names are shown in red italic.
