A small selection of the 2000+ fish species of Maldives coral reefs

During a Naturetrek visit to the Maldives in February 2016, we spent time on the Ari Queen, from which twice-daily snorkelling expeditions provided opportunities to see, photograph and occasionally video reef fish and other marine creatures in the warm waters around coral reefs. This carousel slideshow contains just a small sample of the hundreds of species encountered during our brief time in the Maldives.

Most of the reef fish species shown on this page were identified using Charles Anderson's illustrated guidebook Reef Fishes of the Maldives, ISBN: 99915-54-01-7
