Here are just a few of the species of fish that can be found in the waters around Costa Rica:
The warm waters off Costa Rica have some of the biggest sailfish populations in the world. These large fish are among the fastest in the ocean, and they can grow to more than ten feet in length. Their distinctive fins and elongated bills make them great trophy fish. During peak sailfish season, a full day tour with Chaser Sports Fishing may net you as many as 25 sailfish.
Costa Rica is home to the yellow-fin species of tuna. These large fish can grow to be three or four feet long. Large tuna make good trophy fish, and smaller specimens can be kept for eating. Tuna are fast and strong, making them a prize for any sport fisherman to reel in.
Marlins are some of the most challenging trophies of Quepos Costa Rica fishing. This relative of the sailfish can grow as long as fifteen feet and have displayed considerable strength and speed when hooked. The fish caught by the sailor in Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea is a marlin, giving this species a kind of mythological appeal to some sport fishermen.
