It's not an updated list but you may want to look through it first. Any particular terms are you referring to?

For fishes names, there are common and local dialect names in the fish page if available. If there's a particular term you're not sure, you can always pm me. :)

Snapper there is a few species ... in general we call them "ang zhor" referring to snapper, chia zhor referring to golden snapper and AZK (ang zhor kee ) is the one with a black spot near it's tail.


lamerzia ... it's easier for you to refer to the fish id pages and link it with it's name. http://www.handlinefishing.com/whatsthi ... fishes.htm
It might just get more confusing when we throw you tons of short forms when you don't even know how the fish look like.
Browse through the fish identification section as and when you have time ...
It's pretty interesting and you gonna learn a lot from it.
Should you have queries ... always PM PEACE ! :lol:
