The roosterfish has an unusual arrangement of its ears: the swim bladder penetrates the brain through the large foramina and makes contact with the inner ear. It uses its swim bladder to amplify sounds. Rooster fish can reach over 4 feet (1.2 meters) in length and even though the average weight of the fish hooked is about 20 pounds, some can grow to over 100 pounds (45 kg.). It is a popular game fish, but like most fish in the jack family (besides the amberjack and California yellowtail) it is not considered a good eating fish.
A Roosterfish mount from Gray Taxidermy, the World's Largest Marine Taxidermy and producer of fish mounts, is made from a mold of a real fish, which makes our Roosterfish mount, the finest reproduction available.
