Species of Fish


When fishing in the waters around the island of Barbados, aboard Betsy B Fishing Charters, we target the following main species of fish.


Dorado or Mahi-Mahi or common Dolphin (not related to the marine mammals known as Dolphins) are highly sought for sport fishing due to their beauty and size. Also excellent for eating.

Wahoo or Kingfish are known to sports fishers for speed and high-quality flesh which make it a prize game fish.

Blue Marlin are incredibly fast swimmers, reaching speeds of about 110 kilometers per hour (68 mph).

Sailfish are prized game fish and are known for their incredible jumps.

Tuna are fast swimmers, and some species are capable of speeds of 70 km/h (43 mph) — another excellent fish for the table.

Barracuda are ray-finned fish known for their fearsome appearance. A lesser-known attribute is their beautiful white flesh, which is excellent for eating. A much sought after species for restaurants.

Please note, that as a part of our conservation efforts, it is our policy to release juvenile Blue Marlin, White Marlin, and Sailfish. The other species we generally land.
