Caption: Larval red drum fish (Sciaenops ocellatus). The two larger fish are 21 days old, and are just one centimetre in length. The small fry seen around the two larger fish are nine days old, and 3 millimetres in length. When fully grown, the red drum can reach a length of over a metre and a half. It inhabits coastal and estuarine waters in the western Atlantic Ocean, from Massachusetts, USA, to Mexico. It feeds mainly on smaller fish, crustaceans and molluscs. It is considered a fine food fish.
