I have collected blue tilapia, Tilapia marie, Cichlasoma bimaculatum,
Cichlasoma urophthalmus and Cichlasoma managuense in Miami and the
everglades. I can give you precise locations if you like. Let me know.
Also found Enneacanthus gloriosus and Belonesox in Miami. Peterson's Field
Guide to Freshwater Fish has a good section on the exotics in Florida and
elsewhere - good ID info. Also see this site I think it gives site
Columbus Ohio USA <))><
