Four species of fish


Four species of fish

The image shows four species of tropical fish: the flying fish, the mahi-mahi, and two kinds of tuna. The print goes with a passage in the published travelogue, in which Pieter van den Broecke remarks that, near Cabo Lopez, the crew caught a mahi-mahi with a flying fish in its stomach.
