JACK, ALMACO

Seriola rivoliana

An impressive fish of over 1metre in length. First seen in these waters in 1998. We called it a 'badger' fish because of its distinctive black line through each eye joining at the spine.Two Almacos, one paler than the other, and Black Jacks have been seen hunting together, herding huge shoals of fry into shallow waters.
