Yahoo ! Amy is fishing person too. Now that we are a two spear family again, we both went out hunting today. We went north above Hamburger Beach in search of some coral that would be reasonably protected.

We were pretty limited in where we could go because the wind is still blowing 20 knots and kicking up 6 footers on the ocean. We finally found some stubble coral in about 5 feet of water. It was a little lame, but better than nothing.

I spied a 14 inch Big Eyed Toro hiding among some rocks and decided to point him out to Amy. She spotted him (it wasn't hard being that he is BRIGHT RED among gray rocks) and moved in. After a couple of drive by's, she dove down and WHAMMO! Right in the head.

This is her first kill with a spear and I was impressed.

Back on the mother ship, Amy cleaned her catch with a few pointers from me and then I fried him up and we had fish sandwiches for lunch.

Ok, its in the snapper family. Got a real name for it. Fishbase does not list a Toro. Got a scientific name for it. Where did you find the picture?

edit... Think I found the fish you pictured. Appears to be Priacanthus arenatus or the Atlantic Big Eye. Also has a Spanish common name "Toro". But that was a little harder to find. Has been reported to be linked to of ciguatera poisoning .

There appear to be many fish with the common spanish name Toro.

also Flesh considered excellent quality and is a marketed fish.

If you are talking about the fish is the pictue above. It is edible but known to carry ciguatera poisoning.

The question now becomes; is that the fish to which you are refering?
