      I have to admit, I am fish species illiterate when it comes to salt water fish. I couldn't tell you one from another. But I do like to see them. I just never fished for any. I am fresh water only fisherman and not every fresh water species at that either. Mostly Georgia state only. But that fish looks like a pretty good size. JMHO!

          I have seen a few of them out of Barnegat Inlet over the years. They are actually edible. http://mexfish.com/enad/enad2005/ena...nad051205a.htm
          Not sure they are regulated in any way.

            From the looks of them, they look like they would be a very strong fighting fish with those large top and bottom fins and that wide tail section. Thanks for the post of them. And I have to ask, are they eatable? If so what do they compare to?

                  Okay I see. Just because those countries find things eatable, doesn't give me much confidence about their taste or consumption. I've seen some of their other delicacies.

                      We have lots of those guys here in SoCal. MolaMola... moon fish, I think, not sun fish. the other is an Opa, which is Yummy, silver with a red fringe.

                      These molamola are not considered food, but when you hook one up on a kayak it is a good sleigh ride! Lots of fun on a 2/0 size bait caster...
