FWC freshwater fisheries biologists recently discovered a speckled worm eel (Myrophis punctatus) in the Fenholloway River in Taylor County. The speckled worm eel is typically a coastal marine species – documenting one in freshwater is a unique find. Speckled worm eels may be underreported in freshwater due to misidentification: their snake-like appearance is similar to American eels (Anguilla rostrata) which reside in freshwater for most of their lives.
