Bluefish

(Linnaeus, 1766); POMATOMIDAE FAMILY; also called blue, tailor, elf, chopper, marine piranha, rock salmon, snapper blue, Hatteras blue

Found worldwide, including the Mediterranean and Black Seas, in temperate to tropical waters although sporadic in occurrence and location.

The bluefish is one of only three species of the family Pomatomidae. The mouth has extremely sharp teeth. The existence of a spine in the second dorsal fin, the absence of head markings, and the lack of an interspace between the dorsal fins distinguish the bluefish from the similar looking greater amberjack, Seriola dumerili. The bluefish's lack of finlets immediately distinguishes it from the mackerels.
