Fish » Roosterfish


Roosterfish is a game fish common in the marine waters surrounding Mexico, from the Gulf of California to Panama, and in the eastern Pacific, from California to Peru. It is distinguished by its "rooster comb", seven very long spines of the dorsal fin. Rooster fish can reach 4 feet in length and over 100 pounds, however, the weight of the average fish hooked is about 20 pounds. The fish is popular as a game fish, but like most fish in the jack family it is not considered a good eating fish.
