Malta 10-CENTS (KM96) Lampuka

The Lampuka is a very popular fish in Malta, that is caught in large numbers around the island. Lampuka is the local Maltese name and can actually refer to two different species: the Pompano dolphinfish and the Common dolphinfish. Outside of Malta, it is now popularly known as Mahi-mahi, probably because diners were confused about seeing "dolphins" on the menu.

This is the same design that appears on KM76, with an updated obverse. However, both fish get to swim in the zoo, just because.
