Why Croakers Are Called Croakers
This is an Atlantic Croaker, “Micropogonia undolata”, caught in the Davis Bayou at the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. You can hear him/her croaking if you turn up the volume.

River fish – Baby Croakers
10 August 2014
Croakers — hundreds of them — are everywhere. They are cute and unfortunately for them, taste good. We let them go.
Translated from Ecomare museum in the Netherlands:
A fish that looks like an Eurasian ruffe and makes a croaking sound can really only be one species; an Atlantic croaker. These fish normally live along the Atlantic coast of North America. Every now and then one is caught in the Netherlands. Until now, they were known from the North Sea and the Marsdiep. On September 9 Jan van Triest of the fishing boat HK17 caught one in the Markermeer lake, near Lelystad. This is the first catch from really fresh water.
