THE RESTRICTED FISHES

All fish listed below should be returned to the ocean, if caught for a number of reasons. They may be protected by international and/or Maldivian law, due to fear of extinction or otherwise. They may have sharp spines that will cause injury if handled improperly and may also be poisonous. Some of these species are often not good to eat or have very little flesh and very bony bodies.
