Other than the school of tilapia below, we have not yet started photographing the fish at Samaan Grove. All other images are from Mongabay.com and each has a link to the detailed page on that site.
Mozambique tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus, is the common fish found in the lakes and drains. They were introduced in Tobago many years ago and have now become the dominant species. The photograph below left was taken at Drain 1, just above the silt trap, and shows a school of juvenile tilapia. You will also find guppies (Poecilia reticulata) in the drain which seem to coexist with the other fish.
