Fish Identification

Still wondering what that fish was you caught last weekend? Florida Marine Fisheries has a detailed fish identification booklet called “Fishing Lines”. Each fish has a picture and a description of where they can be found, average size, food value, etc… You will need Adobe Acrobat to view this page.
