Spanish Mackerel - Scomberomorus maculatus

Spanish Mackerel range from Cape Cod to South Florida into the Gulf of Mexico from Florida around to the Yucatan. There are other closely related spieces further south and in the Pacific Ocean.

Spanish Mackerel are a schooling fish but can also be found as singles or doubles. Like most mackerels they feed predominately on smaller fish.

Although they are good to eat their flesh is rather oily and is best served baked. Don't try frying these or most other Mackerels.
