The Search For Milkfish
Milkfish are usually relatively easy to spot. For instance, when fishing on the flats in the knee to waist-deep water, they are usually found in small pods cruising over algae patches with their tails protruding out of the water as they feed on the bottom. Also, when feeding, they will swim to a depth where the greatest abundance of food lies. This can occasionally make them tricky to spot as they sit a few metres under the surface. For the most part, the fish are seen making a bow wake on the surface with their heads out of the water feeding at the top of the water column.
