Hello,

Pez Arana

This seems to be the common name for the fish known as the Greater Weever
in English, Trachinus draco.

There is the first account I have come across of someone being stung by
this fish at:

http://cbr.nc.us.mensa.org/homepages/BMLSS/weever2.htm#Greater Weever 
(upload 5 July 2001).

The identification of this fish is confrmed, but what other stinging fish
are there from the Canary Islands, in shallow water ? because there is also
the report of a swimmer who died after being stung. It could very well by
the fish in the first report  came from reasonably close inshore. 

Cheers

Andy Horton.
