The tarpon, also called the “sliver king,” is a prized game fish with large scales that go from dark green and bluish black to silvery sides. The last ray of the dorsal fin has a long filament that can trail back as far as the tail. They have a specialized swim bladder that allows them survive in oxygen-poor areas by gulping air at the surface of the water.

Tarpon are found in tropical, subtropical and temperate waters, typically living in shallow bays, estuaries and lagoons.
