Hogfish

Florida Keys Brewing Company fans, don't fret. You can still order the local brewer's popular Hogfish Amber. But because of threatened legal action by a well-known Delaware brewer, ask for a Spearfish Amber instead.

Local owners Craig and Cheryl McBay said they received an email late last year from the owners of Dogfish Head Brewery that threatened legal action if the name of the Keys Brewing beer wasn't changed.

Spearing hogfish is a popular pastime along South Florida's reef. So popular, in fact, that by April more than 220,000 pounds of hogfish had been caught along the Atlantic coast.

That's almost three times the limit for the entire year so when federal fisheries managers received the data, they moved to close the recreational harvest as of Monday (Aug. 24).
