Game: I.D. the fish

Recommended Posts

You have to guess the name of the fish in the attached picture.

If you know the answer - you have to upload another picture with a fish for the rest to guess.

 

I'll start - guess what fish is in the below picture :) ???  :hugegrin:

Unca Walt, yours looks like a Croaker, but the second dorsal fin is shorter and color is darker too. You are busting my brain cells on this one.

Awright... Here is one that is a whizzer.

 

The Fabled PC and Your Humble Obdn't &tc were scuba diving in about 100 feet of water offa the coast of Floriduh.

 

This fish is the WEIRDEST one we have seen in forty-five years of scuba diving (yeah, I am that old!!)

 

Can you guess what it is? The blue part is ELECTRIC in color.  Beautiful!

One more.  The outside edge of the "wing" is radioactive blue...

To give y'all a bit of perspective... those wings are two feet across!!

OK nobody guess its an asian carp that got loose in the fresh water system in Illinois. It is threatening to get into Lake Michigan. They have an electric fence in the Chichago river to try to keep them out because the fish breeds like crazy and eats every thing in sight. These things jump when a boat gets near them and several boaters have been severly injured by getting hit by these fish. As you can see by the picture they get pretty large to be hitting people in the face running their boats down the river. They have really become a nuience in the Illinois River east of here but they are finding a market for the fish as their not bad eating. There also considering a cat food factory.

Swede, didn't the Asian carp escape from fisheries further south?  They destroy everything in sight.
