Jack Crevalle

SEASON: March-December

The crevalle jack is a powerful predatory fish, with extensive studies showing the species consumes a variety of small fish.   Dietary shifts with both age, location and season have been demonstrated, which led some researchers to postulate the species is indiscriminant in its feeding habits. The crevalle jack reaches maturity at 55 cm in males and 66 cm in females.  The crevalle jack is an important species to commercial fisheries throughout its range, with annual catches ranging between 1000 and 30 000 tonnes over its entire range. The crevalle jack is also a revered gamefish, taken both by lures and bait. The species is considered of good to poor quality table fair though the balance of the light tackle fight make up with what it lacks in taste.
