NOAA Photo Library Image - fish7923

The croaker is the dominant fish caught with trawls in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Large croakers find a ready market as food fish. In the 1950's a new fishery was started to supply small-sized bottomfishes - mainly croaker, spot, sand trout, and silver trout - to canneries packing pet food.
