Tarpon


Unique Tarpon Wall Lights

Tarpon are found primarily inshore, although adult fish spawn offshore. They can breath air on the surface. Their mouths are large and point upward. They mature at 7 to 13 years. Females may lay more than 12 million eggs at a time. Most anglers catch 40 to 50 pound Tarpons. Florida’s record was 243 pounds!

The facts collected to describe each fish were pulled from various sources over the internet by Sealight Gallery's staff. Sealight wants to acknowledge that we did not write any of the material in regard to the descriptions, but we found the information collected fascinating. We hope that in reprinting it readers will be inspired by it to save and preserve the ocean and all of her glory.
