Description: The Silver King Tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) is a common sight where I live on the southern edge of the Florida Everglades near the Gulf of Mexico. They can tolerate a wide range of salinity and so are found from the deeper parts of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico all the way up into the rivers and creeks of the inland areas. Because of their great ability to leap and fight, they are considered to be the "Holy Grail" of game fish. I just enjoy painting them. From my kayak, I see them rolling on the surface, their long thin dorsal fin making a dark streak on their polished silver back. Tarpon are air breathing fish. To have one surface for a breath near your kayak and have its huge eye gaze back at you is an unforgettable experience.
