This book is a given for recreational and commercial fishermen as well as anyone who loves the outdoors! Since most anglers identify their fish by reviewing illustrations rather than using scientific keys, the authors have succeeded in making fishing easier by providing superb illustrations and detailed diagnostics for fish identification. A valuable, one-stop reference tool for everyday anglers, fisheries experts, biologists, and outdoors writers, this guide includes intensively researched information on 207 species of saltwater fish, essential data on each speciesí habitat, identification, typical size, and food value. By Jerald Horst & Mike Lane, illustrated by Duane Raver. 207 species.

Other Names :Sea Chub, Butter Bream, Bermuda Chub
Range & Habitat :This fish is found Gulfwide, in offshore waters of shallow to moderate depths. The species inhabits a variety of habitats, being found over sea grasses, sand and rocky bottoms, and coral reefs. It is very common at some offshore oil and gas platforms in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
Identification & Biology :Its color is a dull gray with dull yellow horizontal stripes on the body. The small head has a very small mouth with incisor-like teeth, and is set on a deep body. A similar, and closely related species, the yellow chub, Kyphosus incisor, is less commonly found in the Gulf of Mexico. Gill rakers, lateral line scales, and fin rays must be counted to tell the difference between the two. Both species feed primarily on algae, including sargassum, but will take animal food such as cut bait. Their algae diet may account for their poorly regarded taste. They are vigorous fighters when hooked.
Size :Often 5-10 pounds.
Food Value :Poor
