Fish distribution

I find it funny that when I look up a species of fish found  on the East coast, the usually say they are found up to Nova Scotia. 
 

I was just looking up Amber Jacks, distribution range is up to Nova Scotia. I’d pay to see one caught locally. 
 

Redfish  supposedly found to Nova Scotia but are exceedingly rare around  the cape!

Alot of those are historical records going back 100 years. Tropical strays from the gulf stream that happened when certain conditions existed. 

It doesn't mean you can count on finding them in those places with any reliability.

They get tiny tropical strays all the way to Halifax Harbour.

 

That being said, the shores of the south side of Cape Cod have tiny jacks, though it’s late now. Third week in September was the time. The species vary from year to year. The main funny fish spots in RI also produce.

Is it possible the redfish mentioned is the acadian redfish and not red drum?

 

Not saying it isn't possible for red drum to get up to Canada. Here is the normal range for red drum.

Range for acadian red fish. We do get red fish just outside of Boston.
