Jackfish

The trevally is a large species of silvery marine fish in the jack family and a favorite game fish amongst open water anglers. These massive predators can be found individually and in schools throughout the Indo-Pacific region, ranging from South Africa west to Hawaii and Japan south to Australia. Trevallies are intelligent fish species, using targeted hunting strategies to pick off their prey, including other fish species, crustaceans, cephalopods, and mollusks.

Diving with trevally is an exciting experience as they offer thrilling encounters due to their large size and swift swimming abilities. You can spot juvenile trevallies in warm lagoons, whereas the adults prefer deeper waters and are often sighted around offshore atolls and deep drop-offs.
