What Region do they normally live?
This fish is migratory, moving as far North as Massachusetts during the summer, when it can also be found along the coast of Texas. During the colder winter months, the Cobia moves to tropical waters.
What habitat do they prefer?
Large Cobia can be found offshore, while the smaller cobia move inshore and can be found around mangroves, and in inlets or bays. These fish have an appreciation for structure, or anything that breaks up the open water, including floating debris, seaweed rips, oil rigs, or anchored boats, buoys, etc.
