Question Are there any North American Cichlids that are fished?



I was curious if there are any NA cichlids that are regularly fished out and eaten?

If not are there any cichlids in the world that are done so, I'm pretty sure but looking for specific species and names.

Thanks it would be a great help!

Yes, lots of fish we can keep in aquariums are fish that are eaten by locals, such as gouramis and cichlids.

People in Florida catch oscars and jack dempsys and things all the time - fish that have been released and are thriving.

As far as North American cichlids, are you including Central America as part of North America?

I don't know of any actual US cichlids off the top of my head. Sunfish fill that role up here.

The sunfish family is similar to the cichlid family of fish. Sunfish are exclusive to north america, if I recall correctly.
