Spotted Drum $40.00 membership fee

The Spotted Drum fish (Equetus punctatus) vibrate their swim bladders which produces a low pitched (drumming) sound. They hide in crevices, ledges and small caves during the day and feed in the open at night, eating crabs, shrimps and annelid worms. This distinctive fish was chosen to be the symbol of the Marine Park because of its abundance in Statia’s waters.

They eat jellyfish, other small sea animals and plants, and migrate hundreds of miles each year. Leatherbacks nest at Zeelandia beach on Statia from April to June each year, and are a welcome sight as they are critically endangered worldwide.
