Additional Information:

Scientific Name: Megalops

Average Size: Tarpon will grow anywhere from 5 to 8 ft. long and weigh 80 to 300 lbs. Female tarpon grow as large as 300 pounds and can reach over 8ft long. The female tarpon can live for over 50 years while the smaller male tarpon 30 years. The oldest tarpon in captivity lived in an aquarium in Chicago and died at 63 years of age. The all tackle tarpon record is 286lbs, and the Florida tarpon record is 243lbs.

Location & Habitat: There are actually two species of tarpon. One species of Tarpon (Megalops atlanticus – Atlantic Tarpon) is found on the western Atlantic coast from Virginia to Brazil, throughout the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as throughout the Caribbean. Tarpon are also found along the eastern Atlantic coast from Senegal to Angola. The other species of Tarpon (Megalops cyprinoides – Indo-Pacific Tarpon) are found along the eastern African coast, Southeast Asia, Japan, Tahiti and Australia. Both species of Tarpon are found in both salt and freshwater habitats, usually with ascending rivers to access freshwater marshes. Tarpon are also one of the few fish in the world that have a swim bladder. It acts as a lung so tarpon can breathe raw air. Tarpon can still breathe like most fish breath through their gills. This is one reason it is thought that tarpon can battle for so long, because of the amount of oxygen they are able to take in throughout the fight.

Description: Tarpon have dorsal and anal soft rays and usually a bluish/greenish back. Tarpon also have distinctive lateral lines and shiny silvery scales that cover most of their body except for the head. This is why tarpon are nicknamed the silver king, derived from the bright flash that reflects from its body as it jumps. Tarpon have very large eyes with adipose eyelids and a broad mouth with a prominent lower jaw that juts out farther than the rest of its face.

There have been many polls done proclaiming tarpon as the ultimate sport fish, and it’s easy to see why. When it comes to pound for pound explosiveness, endurance, and jumping ability not many come close. At Coast To Coast Fish Mounts, we capture that explosiveness and unique coloration that only your tarpon displays with a tarpon replica fish mount that will last a lifetime.

Thanks again for this amazing replica of my Tarpon.  This came out incredible, so life like and detailed.  By far the nicest Tarpon mount I've ever seen, and I've been looking for years.  Best part is it's hanging over the fireplace on the first floor of my house, that's how much my wife likes it :)
