Chub Mackerel (Scomber Japonicus)

The chub mackerel (scomber japonicus) is a kind of fish from the scombridae family. This species is very similar to mackerel (scomber scombrus); however, the marks in the inferior part make it different. The back is greenish and it has more or less clear lines. The flanks and the belly are silver-yellow, flecked with small spots like grey moles and the superior part of the head is translucent. The chub mackerel is a gregarious fish which carries out long migrations. It constitutes big shoals, especially in the seaside area and it can be usually found on the surface which favours the catch through trawling, net fishing or bottom-set net.

It is a very common fish in the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, and it is very appreciated for the taste and the consistency of the meat.
