Tarpon - The Massive, Ancient Saltwater Fish

Tarpons are impressive, ancient ocean fish and a fun, popular catch amongst saltwater anglers. Since prehistoric times, they have been swimming in our oceans and are now considered one of the great saltwater game fish. Tarpons, on average, grow up to 2 meters (6.5 feet) long and 45 kg (100 lbs) or larger! Divers who encounter tarpon underwater often mistake them as sharks at first due to their massive size and silver coloration.
