A TROPICAL fish common to Indonesian waters has been caught off the Costa Blanca.
The tripletail (Lobotes surinamensis) was hooked off the Segura river estuary near Torrevieja, and was the second catch in two months on Spain’s eastern coast.
The tripletail is a common sight in Indonesian markets, but can be found in Atlantic tropical waters between Argentina to Madeira.
The catch shows the temperature of the Mediterranean must to be increasing little by little,” a spokesperson for the Natural Chronicles of Torrevieja said.
“In our waters it is very rare, but it seems there is a clear tendency for more and more to be found in more northern latitudes.”
Another tripletail, called dormilona in Spanish, was caught just north of Valencia in April.
