Sheepshead

Latin Name:  Archosargus probatocephalus

General Size:  15" x 10"

Seemingly to have escaped from jail, the Sheepshead has distinctive vertical black and white stripes that separate it from every other member of the family Sparidae (and every other fish for that matter). Sheepshead are often caught (and kept) by those fishing in intercoastal water near pilings and other barnacle-encrusted structure. Additionally, they can be seen off-shore on shallow reefs foraging for mollusks and crustaceans. Sheepshead have limited geographic range in the Western Atlantic that stretches from New England to Brazil. The name Sheepshead comes from the fish's teeth which are shaped very similarly to actual sheep teeth.
