Atlantic Tarpon

The Atlantic Tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) can be found in the Atlantic ocean and Indo-Pacific seas and also often in freshwater environments. They belong to the family Megalopidae and love warm shallow darker waters having sandy and muddy bottoms.

They sport large eyes, shiny silvery scales, and blue to green backs plus an elongated dorsal fin ray and anal fin ray. The Tarpon exhibit three distinctive levels of development that take place in varying habitats. It is a popular game fish because of its high-flying antics, elusive nature, size, and fighting spirit. Besides, the tarpon also has a swim bladder that it also uses as a respiratory organ.

Atlantic Tarpons have a total length between 5’-8’ (152-244 cm), body height of 12”-19” (30.5-48 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 60-280 lb (27-127 kg). The typical lifespan of the Atlantic Tarpon is 30-55 years.
