Pterois miles, the devil firefish or common lionfish, is a species of ray-finned fish native to the western Indo-Pacific region. Seen in many places of the Red Sea. It is a venomous fish.


These fish pose a serious threat to reef fish populations and thus to coral reef ecosystems and the people who depend on them.


Usually we have seen the common lionfish, which is red brown beige in color. The black volitan lionfish I have only seen in the Red Sea in Jordan.

Back In The Red Sea

What a thrill it is to dive into the Red Sea waters. Each time I am happy and excited, and I know I will see beautiful sealife, maybe a few new species… and all those wonderful, colorful corals, that Red Sea still has.
