Sea creatures in Arabic

In this lesson, we’ll talk about various types of Samak (fish) and other sea creatures in Arabic. Some of these you might find on a plate garnished with lemon, and some you might see on a snorkeling trip or in a fish tank peeking out from behind some coral! Either way, this is important vocabulary to know while traveling anywhere in the world.
