List of over 400 common, accepted and scientific names of the fish swimming in the Western Atlantic & Gulf of Mexico waters

Here is a list of over 400 common, accepted and scientific names of the fish swimming in the Western Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico waters.

The first column, "Common Name" is what you and I would call a fish.

The middle column, "Accepted Common Name" is the name used for regulatory, fisheries management & law enforcement purposes.

The third column, "Scientific Name" is the scholarly, taxonomic name for the fish.

The bottom line...
◦  A fish can have several common names.
◦  A common name can mean different fish depending on where you live.
◦  We use names that are locally or regionally acceptable, but they are not always accurate.
