Tanegashima Fish Types
Oriental Butterflyfish Chouchouo Chaetodon AuripesTanegashima Fish Types

These are all of the fish we actually caught since moving to Tanegashima. We tried all of them and, aside for a few, most were pretty good to eat. More information about cooking the fish coming soon.

Click on any of the links in the fish list below for detailed information about each fish and where you can catch them on Tanegashima.

Picture - The Oriental Butterflyfish, probably the most colorful fish we caught so far. This fish is definitely more suited for an aquarium than the dinner table.
