Fishes of the Family Carangidae
of the Northern Gulf of Mexico and three related species.
By 1976, these other species, comprising mainly Clupeidae, Caesionidae, Atherinidae, and Carangidae
, had risen to 10 percent of the catch and continued rising to 30 percent by 1981 (Table 4).
The primary families include: Acanthuridae, Carangidae
, Gerreidae, Holocentridae, Kyphosidae, Labridae, Lethrinidae, Lutjanidae, Mugilidae, Mullidae, Scaridae, and Siganidae.

The high-value reef species (Serranidae, Lutjanidae, Lethrinidae) are unsatisfactory alternatives for fishermen because they come in smaller sizes (compared to Carangidae
and Scombridae) or in smaller numbers (compared to Caesionidae), and therefore would fetch a lower price.
The giant trevally known as ulua aukea in Hawaii) (Caranx ignobilis (Forsskal)), is the largest species in the commercially important family Carangidae
