Fishes of the Maldives

The Marine Life of Maldives

 

The 26 atolls that form the Maldives can be well known for their stunning white sands and luxury resorts, but they are also famous for their colorful and exotic marine life. The known fish fauna of the Maldives now stands at some 1100 species, far exceeding biodiversity seen in most other regions. As you may or may not know, the main economy of the Maldives is tourism, and their warm waters with an abundance of fish, manta rays, sharks and turtles provide excellent opportunities to snorkeling and diving.

We have compiled a small guidebook that will help you identify fish and sea creatures in the Maldives that you can discover in your next underwater adventure.
