Fish Names

There are scientific names for fish and then there are the names commonly given to them those of us without a degree in marine sciences use. Back home some of the more common fish names are:

  • perch (did someone see them perched somewhere?)
  • rock bass (these guys usually are found hiding in the rocks)
  • walleye (hmm, eyes?)
Here in Florida the fish we catch off the dock have some common names too:

  • snapper (these come in a variety of color names but were they named for snapping at something?)
  • needlefish (that's easy. They look like a needle)
  • grunts (this is an easy one too. Watch the video and listen closely. They grunt.)
