Record of the bigeye trevally, Caranx sexfasciatus, and Mexican lookdown, Selene brevoorti, with notes on other carangids
are highly regarded as food and game fishes, many species are exploited worldwide.
carangopsis is likely based on material (deposited at NMW) from two carangid
ignobilis, all fin-rays were present in the smallest specimens (8 mm), and scales were present from about 14 mm, yet the preopercular spines that characterizes most carangid
larvae (Leis and Carson-Ewart, 2004) were still present at 19 mm.

In the southeastern United States, many carangid

The association behavior of carangid

Both are often closely followed by other efficient fish predators, especially carangids
, the larger labrids, and serranids, to take advantage of the goatfish's skill in exposing prey.

Some generalizations include: hook width is not closely related to fish mouth width (within a species), but is almost always smaller than mouth width (Owens & Merrick 1994); small hooks are best for fish with small mouths and fish which nibble rather than rapidly strike; and large hooks are more effective for large, voracious carnivores such as lutjanids (snappers), scombrids (tunas) and carangids
(jacks, trevallys) (Johannes 1981).
