Tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) nicknamed the "Silver King", are large fish that are powerful predators, and they are big game fish. They live in a wide variety of habitats, primarily saltwater. Tarpon reside in bays, coastal regions, open oceans, estuaries, and more. They are very fast swimmers. Catch-and-release fishing has led to a decline in this species.
