Mauritius - Fish
The Postal Services of Mauritius issued a set of 12 definitive postage stamps on Fishes of Mauritius to replace the definitive set on the Protection of the Environment. The set comprises stamps of the 50cs, Re1, Rs2, Rs3, Rs4, Rs5, Rs6, Rs7, Rs8, Rs10, Rs15 and Rs25 denominations. For this issue, the philatelic products consist of 3 sets of First Day Covers with 4 stamps each, 3 Souvenir Sheets with 4 stamps each and Souvenir Sheets on 3 First Day Covers. I am showing only one of these FDCs issued on 9.10.2000. These fishes with the exception of some species are found throughout the tropical Indian and Pacific Oceans.
