North Atlantic Silver Moon Fish

Last week we had this tiny, beautiful silver fish come up in one of our lobster traps. It definitely isn’t native to Maine and looks to be some type of tropical fish. I haven’t sent it to any marine biologists yet but plan to do so soon. Maybe one of our AARP instagram followers has the answer. #northhaven #maine #penobscot bay #loberstering #commercialfishing #sunny #hand #fish #water #topical #aarp #davidwrightphoto

(Editor’s note: After Dave posted this photo a friend of his commented that he had caught a similar looking creature in a trap last November and posted a link to this flikr file of two Atlantic Silver Moon Fish. What do you think?)
