    A checklist is presented, as a result of ichtyological research carried out in the Alacranes Reef in Yucatan, Mexico between February 1997 and November 1999. The list includes 230 species in 118 genera and 59 families. Fish species were principally identified visually. These were complemented with collections using different fishing methods and by sampling fish capture in ships in the area. The best represented families by number of species were: Serranidae (23); Labridae (13); Scaridae (13); Pomacentridae (13); and Gobiidae (12). Based on comparisons with previous research in the Alacranes Reef, these results represent 80 new species records for this system and eight new records for Mexico.
