Sea Bream GALLERY

Archosargus rhomboidalis

The Sea Bream is a member of the Porgy family of fishes. Look for the yellow/gold/ horizontal stripes over silver body, yellow anal and ventral fins. Occasionally they will display dark gray bars. The one distinguishing mark is the dark grey smudge behind the gill cover. I've seen them most often in shallow water usually in groups of 3 or more. They are generally unconcerned and have often come over and circled round and round me. A fish that grows to not much more than a foot in length, but most often in the 5-8 inch range.
