Once they attach an age to the fish or animal it almost starts to make you feel uncomfortable in harvesting it.

When a budy I know caught the world record Croaker they knew its age by the rings around the fishes ears (I'm sure they are not called ears). I wonder if its the same with all fish?



This croakers was over 8 pounds 3 more then the prior worl record and was 8 yrs old.

a fishes age is told by taking its ear bone out and disecting it and reading the rings - -- like tree rings--
