Amberjack Week at the Dock!

Monday, February 28th, 2011 | Uncategorized | No Comments

This week we are featuring amberjack in both stores.  First, a little education:

Amberjacks are found throughout Florida around natural or man-made reefs, rock outcrops and wrecks. They are a colorful fish with lavender and golden tints and an amber band from the eye to the tail. The back is blue or olive green and the side and belly are silvery-white. Occasionally amberjacks have an amber, even pinkish, cast to the body. Amberjacks are voracious predators that forage over reefs and wrecks in small groups and can weigh more than 150 pounds, but the smaller amberjacks, weighing 15 pounds or less, are considered the best to eat. They are caught by commercial fishermen using longlines.
