    Italian Fish ID, please

    Can anyone identify these fish for me please? The first was taken in the Aeolian Islands, the others just out of Naples. All in September.

    Thanks.

    When your looking at your image on 'imgbb' look under the pic on the left hand side and click on 'Embed codes' scroll down and you will see 'BBCode' copy that code and paste onto the forum and your image should show up.

    I am more interested in the mosaic floor. Is it old?
    Paul.
    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    Yes, it's Roman. I'll post some more photos once I've got the fish sorted out.

    Thanks. 1,3 and 4 agreed. For the second photo the fish in front looks quite different as it has two bands. There is indeed a fish called the Two banded seabream which occurs in the Med, so I think it's that. There's also what looks like a Striped Red Mullet in the photo.

    For the last picture, I think there are two species, one with horizontal stripes, the other with vertical ones. I don't think they are white seabream. I'll do some further searches.

    OK, maybe the last picture is a white seabream in front with Salema Porgy behind.

    Some more photos here. It's really quite impressive to see the mosaics underwater. http://www.learnedtraveller.com/napl...olian-islands/
