This week we are looking for HOGFISH photos. These are one of our favorites! The look is so unique.
Hog snapper, or simply hogfish, are a member of the wrasse family of fishes. They are also one of the more exotic looking critters to swim on our Florida coastline. The very long “pig-like” snout and its rooting behavior give the hogfish its name. They are know for their bright orange and salmon color, large snout mouth and rooster like fins off the top of their heads. The average size ranges from 1 to 4 lbs.
CONGRATULATIONS to Kingfish photo winner Jason Menne. His photo took the win last week and won him a King of the Beach entry fee; shirt & parking pass!
