Shark mackerel

The Shark mackerel lives in the reef-associated, oceanodromous, marine, depth range 15 - m environment.

THE FIRST time I fished for shark mackerel they were busting up bait on the surface out from Parker Point at Rottnest. The air was full of terns that wheeled and dived repeatedly into a small area of rippled ocean. More

Shark mackerel can grow up to 130cm and 12kg. When mature they are 58-59cm in length. This species is yellowish green along the back and upper sides, shading to brassy silver along the belly. More
