Triggerfish At Captain Joe’s

Day before yesterday Aaron on The Lady Margaret brought in this Triggerfish.  In my 33 years down the dock and after handling a bajillion pounds of fish at our dock I’ve only seen a couple of these.  The wikipedia page on Triggerfish is pretty interesting.  It says they are normally found in warm coastal waters of the Atlantic, Mediterranean and the Indo-Pacific.  This one must have followed it’s way up the jet Gulf stream.

Video at 8AM Thursday where you can see just what happens to this particular fish.
