Every year from January to mid April, lemon sharks meet and aggregate along the Eastern Coast of Florida. Lemon sharks grow up to 13 feet long and average approximately 10 feet. They are found in the shallower waters of the Bahamas and Caribbean as well as Florida. Lemon sharks get their name from the yellowish tinge to the skin on their back (with an off white belly) that is great camouflage when they are resting on the sea floor. The skin has a mottled and pitted lemon feel to it. The lemon shark is one of the larger species of sharks. Let's go see some!
