The Atlantic Tarpon or Silver King is a widely distributed predator found throughout the coastal regions of the tropical Atlantic Ocean. Although they are thought of as marine fish, they also can be found in fresh or brackish water habitats close to the coast. As an open water swimmer and predator growing to a massive adult size, the Atlantic Tarpon is suitable only for the largest home aquariums.

Atlantic tarpons grow to about 4 to 8 feet (1.2 to 2.4 meters) long and are very active, with superb strength. When hooked, the tarpon leaps vigorously, which makes it a sought-after game fish. They have silvery bodies covered with large scales. Adult tarpons prey on crabs, shrimp and fish, and swallow them whole.
