Description

The hogfish is a unique and interesting fish that is found in the waters of the Florida Keys. Its name comes from the way it roots around in the sandy seafloor with its pointed snout, looking for crustaceans and mollusks. The hogfish is not a snapper at all, but a member of the wrasse family. Its long snout, large mouth with protruding front teeth, and dorsal fin with elongated streamers distinguish it from any other fish in Florida Keys waters. The hogfish is a very popular fish to eat, as it is considered to be very healthy and delicious. It is often caught by fishermen and served fresh. If you are ever in the Florida Keys, be sure to try some hogfish!
