Scup are small silvery fish with prominent scales, a rounded body that is relatively flat in thickness, which makes it an excellent panfish. Scup live in coastal waters of the Atlantic Ocean between Cape Cod and Cape Hatteras. They travel in schools with the young coming close to land in only a few feet of water while the larger fish prefer deeper waters five to six miles from shore. Scup prefer smooth to rocky bottoms and feed on a variety of crustaceans, young squid, fish fry, and whatever invertebrates are available. Scup migrate in schools.
