Georgia State Fish

Georgia State FishLeft to Right: largemouth bass, brook trout and red drum.

Like Maine, Georgia has three state fishes. The largemouth bass rivals the mockingbird as one of the most popular symbols in the South. The brook trout is a popular symbol among Eastern states. Georgia calls the red drum—a symbol shared by North Carolina and Texas—its official saltwater fish.

In a sense, Georgia has four official fishes. Its state fossil is the shark tooth.
