When small, spadefish (Chaetodipterus faber) make very interesting additions to marine aquariums. Buddy Andersen of Barboursville, Virginia, caught this juvenile off Hatteras Island, North Carolina." I thought it was a chip of wood until I tried to pick it up and it swam away." Spadefish range from Massachusetts to Brazil along the Atlantic Coast and are also found in the Gulf of Mexico. They are targeted as sport fish in some areas, including North Carolina.
