Abstract

The Bahía de Banderas, located in the central Mexican Pacific, has a large diversity of fish species, which is described for the first time in the present systematic checklist, which includes a total of 210 species, belonging to 145 genera and 74 families. 205 species were collected between 1997 and 1998, and the remaining five were observed and positively identified but not captured. The results show an important tropical component (117) over the temperate one (7), and the rest of the species (76) with a wide distribution along the eastern Pacific Ocean. The best represented families by number of species were: Carangidae (19), Haemulidae (16), Sciaenidae (13), Serranidae (11) and Paralichthyidae (8). Accordingly to recent bibliographic records, eleven species reported here have extended their known distribution range to Bahía de Banderas.
