Amberjack, the name of a group of fish found in temperate ocean waters throughout the world. Many amberjacks are popular game fish. The common, or greater, amberjack is found off the west coast of Europe, off the east coast of the United States, and in the Gulf of Mexico. It is most abundant south of Cape Hatteras and is often caught as a game fish in Florida waters. Its upper body is blue, the belly is silver, and the fins are yellowish-gray. The common amberjack can reach five to six feet (1.5 to 1.8 m) in length and more than 100 pounds (45 kg) in weight. The average weight, however, is 10 to 15 pounds (4.5 to 6.8 kg). The Pacific amberjack and the Pacific yellowtail are often caught off the southwestern coast of the United States.
Amberjacks make up the genus Seriola. The common amberjack is S. dumerili; the Pacific amberjack, S. colburni; the Pacific yellowtail, S. lalandei. Amberjacks belong to the family Carangidae.
Fish Molding Process
We have and continue to travel the world to make our one of a kind molds as they are a vital part in order to handcraft the most popular fish mounts on the market. Our patented molds are then used to create the various fish models from which we can reproduce the life-like fish trophy mounts.
We do not extend, shorten or modify an existing model to fulfill an order. Instead we use one of the over 10,000 models of various sizes and species available. And we can ofcourse customize the mount to fulfill your needs and we are confident that we can build your custom fish mount regardless of inch increment or fish species.
We build one fish at a time to match the length, girth, and all of the specific characteristics and details only YOUR FISH displays. [Complete Molding Process]
