Fishes in Guatemala - Peten II

After making our way to El Remate, along the shore of Lago Peten-Itza, we settled and prepared to start our sampling of the region.   We started the morning by collecting from the shore of the lake with cast nets and seines.  We collected several cichlid species that were targets for some ichthyologists in the group, such as Thorichthys affinis, ‘Cichlasoma’ urophthalmum, Petenia splendida, and Paraneetroplus melanurus.
