Identification & Biology :This fish has a more elongated body than the crevalle and horse-eye jacks. It has silvery sides with a darker back. Its distinguishing feature is a dark bar that extends from under the soft part of the dorsal fin downward and rearward through the lower tip of the tail. Little is known of its biology, except that it is a fish-eater.
Size :Grows to at least 5 pounds, and most likely twice that weight.
Food Value :Good
