The second dorsal fin and the anal fin, as well as the finlets between those fins and the tail, are bright yellow, giving this fish its common name.
Can grow up to 8 feet in length. Maximum weight of individuals probably exceeds 400 lb, with the all-tackle angling record standing at 392 lb. They are large, deep-bodied, streamlined fish with large heads and eyes.

The sides have a faint silvery hue with dusky specks, and the belly is white.

Together, these are used to pick and crush prey such as mollusks and crustaceans. Their skin also has a rubbery quality with a heavy slime covering, which helps to protect them when swimming among rocks.
Blue Claw Crabs
Can grow up to 9’’ in width, point to point, but in most cases are 6½ ’’ or less in size. Males and females are easily distinguished by the shape of the abdomen (known as the “apron”) and by color differences in the claws. The abdomen is long and slender in males, but wide and rounded in mature females. An easy way to tell the sexes apart is to remember that the male’s apron is shaped like the Washington Monument, while the mature females resembles the dome of the United States Capitol.Claw color differences are more subtle than apron shape. The immovable, fixed finger of the claws in males is blue with red tips, while females have orange coloration with purple tips.
