The crevalle jack
, Caranx hippos (Linnaeus), is a migratory, coastal species that is distributed worldwide at subtropical and tropical latitudes (Briggs, 1960; Kwei, 1978; Grosslein and Azarovitz, 1982).
Most commercial landings of crevalle jack
in the western Atlantic are from Florida, and annual catches of 221 to 320 t (metric tons) were recorded during 2000-2004 (NMFS (2)).
For bycatch in Area 1 over half was discarded; king mackerel, little tunny, crevalle jack
, cobia, and great barracuda were kept.
Food of the crevalle jack
(Caranx hippos) from Florida, Louisiana and Texas.
Red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) was the most commonly tagged species (n=2064), followed by black drum (Pogonias cromis, n=1468), sheepshead (Archosargus probatocephalus, n = 1117), common snook, (Centropomus undecimalis, n=510), spotted seatrout (Cynoscion nebulosus, n=364), crevalle jack
(Caranx hippos, n=114), and bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas, n=25).
There was no significant correlation between the number of bigeye or crevalle jack
caught in Narragansett Bay and Long Island Sound.
These include Spanish mackerel, blackfin tuna, amberjack, black drum, gag grouper, wahoo, bluefish, gafftopsail catfish, crevalle jack
, and ladyfish.
