    Hi Sunkist,

    the anal fin and the dorsal fin shouldn;t be so long right??


    Cheers,
  • Jacktrevally
    The fins is one and the other is the hard scale near the tail.

    Having caught a few different kind of trevallies, it is hard to distinguish them when they are small.

    Have a look at this one http://www.fishbase.org/Summary/Species ... e=lugubris

    http://www.fishbase.org/Summary/Species ... =ignobilis

    http://www.fishbase.org/images/species/Cahip_u0.jpg

    The profile is the key The Big eye trevally has a slimmer and longer profile. The rounder profile can distinguish between the fishes, some have hard scale on the tail. Different little features that change differes from species.

    I'll just say it's a kind of crevalle Jack which is again subdivided in different kind.

    Hi Michael,

    Jacktrevally is right... it's a kind of Crevalle Jack.

    http://www.fishbase.org/Summary/SpeciesSummary.cfm?ID=71&genusname=Caranx&speciesname=hippos

    Cheers

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for helping to ID this trevally. It is very difficult identify this juvenile trevally just by looking at the picture. From the info you guys have and looking up fishbase further, I have come to the following conclusion. It probably is not a Crevalle Jack it is not found in the waters in this region but in the Atlantic Ocean. As per fishbase data, "Indian Ocean records are probably misidentifications of Caranx ignobilis. Reports from Pacific refer to Caranx caninus, which may be conspecific." Looking further, the Caranx caninus or Pacific Crevalle Jack is also not found in waters in this region. Thus the juvenile trevally should be either the Big Eye Trevally or Giant Trevally. I've found a picture of a juvenile GT on fishbase and looking at it I think the fish is more likely a juvenile GT. All this is my guess work, please correct me if I'm wrong.


    Cheers!


  • Jacktrevally
    as I said juvenile trevally are quite difficult to identify. The Jack Crevalle can be found in the indian ocean, Iit is very similar to the Giant trevally but someone from this forum caught a 9lb earlier this year in the indian ocean and it was definetely a Jack crevalle. We did wonder how little different it was from the Giant but the head and profile gave it away.
