Latin Name:  Seriola raviliana

Almaco jacks (Family Carangidae) have a global distribution and are most often observed in midwater. These jacks are voracious and prefer to feed mainly on other fishes. Almaco jacks may also become prey if larger bony fish or sharks are in the area. This species shouldn’t be confused with a similar looking fish, the lesser Amber Jack.
