    I see only one tarpon caught in Europe.

      Other one was caught in 1973 but no photo, only a replica in the Vasco da Gama Museum in Lisbon.

        Apparently a few tarpon catches have been reported in Ireland in the last couple of decades. My interest in this subject was generated when I wrote the “Michelangelo’s Tarpon” article for Midcurrent. Lately, I have been trying to get it translated into the languages of the cultures cited in the article.

    That was cool to see. I have never heard of anyone targeting north of Africa. If that was shot in Portugual there were a decent number of fish.
