Etymology: Seriola: Latin word diminutive with the meaning of a large earthenware pot (Ref. 45335).
More on author: Risso.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
marinhas associadas(os) a recifes; oceanódromo (Ref. 51243); intervalo de profundidade 1 - 360 m (Ref. 11441), usually 18 - 72 m (Ref. 9626). Subtropical; 45°N - 28°S, 180°W - 180°E
Circumglobal. Indo-West Pacific: South Africa, Persian Gulf, southern Japan and the Hawaiian Islands, south to New Caledonia; Mariana and Caroline islands in Micronesia. Western Atlantic: Bermuda (Ref. 26938), Nova Scotia, Canada to Brazil; also from the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea (Ref. 9626). Eastern Atlantic: British coast (vagrant) to Morocco and the Mediterranean. Distribution in eastern central Atlantic along the African coast is not well established due to past confusion with Seriola carpenteri (Ref. 7097).
Length at first maturity / Tamanho / Peso / Idade
Maturity: Lm 99.5, range 80 - 127 cm
Max length : 190 cm TL macho/indeterminado; (Ref. 3397); common length : 100.0 cm TL macho/indeterminado; (Ref. 3197); peso máx. Publicado: 80.6 kg (Ref. 3287); Idade máx. registada: 15 anos (Ref. 113943)
Espinhos dorsais (total): 8; Raios dorsais moles (total): 29-35; Espinhos anais 3; Raios anais moles: 18 - 22. Bluish grey or olivaceous above, silvery white below; amber stripe along midside of body; fins dusky (Ref. 3197). Second dorsal and anal fins with low anterior lobe (Ref. 26938). Species of Seriola lack scutes (Ref. 37816).
Adults found in deep seaward reefs; occasionally entering coastal bays. They feed primarily on fishes such as the bigeye scad, also on invertebrates (Ref. 4233). Small juveniles associate with floating plants or debris in oceanic and offshore waters. Juveniles form small schools or solitary (Ref. 5213). Eggs are pelagic (Ref. 4233). Utilized fresh and frozen; eaten pan-fried, broiled and baked (Ref. 9987). Reported to cause ciguatera in some areas (Ref. 26938).
Spawning happens during the summer, in areas near the coast. Embryo development lasts about 40 hours at 23° and larval development 31-36 days. Egg size 1.9 mm, larval at hatching 2.9 mm.
