Common names include spotted seatrout, seatrout, speckled seatrout, spotted squeteague, spotted trout, and spotted weakfish.
With a range limited to the western Atlantic Ocean, the spotted seatrout is found from Cape Cod, Massachusetts to southern Florida and throughout the entire Gulf of Mexico. The spotted seatrout is a demersal fish that is found in brackish to marine water. It has been observed in shallow coastal and estuarine waters over sandy bottoms and seagrass to depths of 33 feet (10 m). This euryhaline fish also resides in salt marshes and tidal pools of salinities up to 75‰ (parts per thousand). During the warm summer months, spotted seatrout associate with seagrass beds, moving to deeper pockets of water in estuaries during the cooler months. They rarely migrate far from estuaries where they are spawned.
The spotted seatrout has an elongate, somewhat compressed body with a slightly elevated back. The head is long with a pointed snout and large oblique mouth. The dorsal fin is continuous or slightly separate. The fins are scaleless with the exception of 1-10 rows of small scales at dorsal and anal fin bases. The lateral line extends onto the tail which is a characteristic of all Sciaenids. This fish may be confused with others of its genus, especially the weakfish, C. regalis. However, the spotted seatrout has a distinctive pattern of black spots scattered along the upper body and extending into the caudal and dorsal fins. This coloration distinguishes the spotted seatrout from C. regalis and other members of Cynoscion.
The body of the spotted seatrout is silvery with irregular black spots on the upper half, from the dorsal to the caudal fin. The dorsal side is dark gray with bluish reflections while the ventral side is silvery to white. The dorsal fin is dusky while other fins pale are to yellowish in color. There is a black margin on the posterior edge of the caudal fin. The upper jaw of the spotted seatrout contains a pair of large canine-like teeth with the lower jaw consisting of an enlarged inner row of closely set teeth. There are no teeth on the vomer, palatines, or tongue. The spotted seatrout grows to a maximum length of 39 inches TL (total length) and a maximum weight of 17.5 pounds . Males reach sexual maturity at approximately 2 years of age - 7.9-9.4 inches standard length (SL), while females mature at 3 years of age - 8.3-9.8 inches SL. The expected life span of this species is 8-10 years.
