A Roosterfish is easy to distinguish from other fish due to its unique “rooster comb”. The dorsal fins usually remain retracted in a deep groove along the back, but when it’s excited, the fins rise. It is one of the true exotic fish of the world and it’s Spanish name is Papagallo. They can get up to 6 feet long, weigh up to about 114 pounds and are strong angling fighters. Often found in the ocean off Ecuador, they are along sandy shores from the Gulf of California to Peru where they feed on long, slender fish.
