Coconut is the name given to the fruit (sometimes called a nut) from the coconut palm tree. This fruit has three layers which are the outside (brown fibrous husk), inner (brown hard shell) and inside (white edible “meat” and coconut water).

They are mostly caught in low light conditions or when there is considerable chop on the water. The maximum size recorded is 107 cm (42 in) and 11.3 kg (25 lb), but the average fish caught by anglers is around 30-50 cm (12 – 20 in). Let’s find out where these fish live.
