North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries' Guide to Fish and Their Habitats
The "Fish Finder?" How does it work?
We've divided the fish which are commonly found in coastal North Carolina into several categories. These relate to either the type of fish (tunas, billfish, etc) or the locations where they are most commonly caught. Of course, sometimes some of the fish in the offshore/reef group might swim closer to shore and be found where you would expect inshore/coastal fish. Likewise some of the inshore/coastal fish are as much at home offshore as inshore. We have also listed all the fish by name only in an alphabetical glossary.
