    That's super cool. There's 121 species of puffer's.I'm no fish expert by any means, but I agree it looks like some kind of puffer fish.

    There tropical. Their found in very warm waters, but of course maybe with global warming.....
    I always wanted a blow fish in my own fish tank. There so cool. A lot of work though.

    yeah, I'm pretty sure it's a more tropical fish, but it's weird that I've seen 2 in the past 2 days

    Looks like a spiny boxfish (burrfish): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Striped_burrfish

    They have a hard "shell" unlike your normal puffer fish there and their spines are visible all the time. Also they suck to step on when they wash up dead.

    every year about this time tropical fish come up w/ the Gulf Stream and they live for a short time then they die I've seen Sunfish, Gars, even things looked liked Clown fish in the surf right off Monmouth County - nothing to do w/ global warming its normal

    good to eat?

    Are these puffer fish OK to eat? I was catching these at OBX and giving them to a guy who said they were good to eat.
