Nothing surprises a visitor to Havana, Cuba, more than the fish which he sees exposed for sale. Instead of the dull and drab colors which are common to the fish in Northern latitudes, they exhibit the most brilliant hues. Some are striped with hands of gold and silver, the lustre of which is like that of the polished metals. The very eels are covered with shining blue, white and yellow streaked.
