Permit are found in the western Atlantic ocean from Massachusetts to Brazil, including most of the Caribbean islands.

Here, our Wooden Permit swims among metal sea grass, bent with the press of the ocean current. Our Permit is hand carved and hand painted, with glass eyes. Small metal crab on sandy bottom, is in real trouble! 12x8x4.
