Fish and Crabs
To make it easier to picture the various fish and crabs in the wild, browse the images below.
The largemouth bass (micropterus salmoides) also called black bass, is native to southeastern Canada, the eastern United States and northern Mexico. A member of the sunfish family, this gamefish can be found in streams, rivers, lakes, ponds and reservoirs. Generally look for the smaller fish in the shallower water and the larger fish in the deeper water.
The Florida gar (lepisosteus platyrhynchus) can be found from the Georgia watersheds of the Savannah and Ochlokonee rivers down into and throughout Florida. Look for them in medium to large lowland streams and rivers, canals and lakes with muddy or sandy bottoms with nearby underwater vegetation.
The Atlantic tarpon (megalops atlanticus) can be found on the western coast of the Atlantic Ocean, from Virginia in the United States, south through the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, all the way to Brazil in South America.
