Finding Saltwater Fish
There are many different environments in salt waters, each with individual conditions that suit particular species. Yet these marine habitats and their residents are all connected, forming a perfect symbiotic balance. The empty snail shell you find on the beach becomes a home for the hermit crab, which is eaten by the blackfish, which is preyed upon by the shark, which dies and decomposes and eventually becomes food for the snail.
Luckily, you don't need a degree in marine ecology to figure out where to cast your sandworm to catch a flounder. However, you do need knowledge of preferred habitats of the species you're after, how they are influenced by the tide, how they feed, and how to increase your chances of catching them.
