Husbandry

(Forsskål, 1775)

Caranx ignobilis, also known as Giant Treveally, is to found in all around the Globe. As with most of its cousins, smaller Giant Treveallies are common in estuaries and river systems. Mature specimens move out to deeper water where there is usually structure such as a coral reef or a bommie.

These are the largest of the trevally species weighing in at a maximum of 60 kg and a length of up to 1.7 metres. The Giant Treveally is robust and solid in appearance and can be distinguished from other trevally by the steep profile of their head. They have immense power which can be attributed to thick shoulders and midsections of muscle and large almost paddle like pectoral and tail fins. Their colouration can range from an almost white-silver to jet black. They may also exhibit a dusky golden hue all over the body, particularly on the fins.

Caranx ignobilis hunts on virtually any baitfish and uses its superior swimming speed to cannon into its prey. If it does not scoop up the fish it will be stunned or dead allowing it to make a second pass to pick it up. This means that Giant Treveallies will hit your gear at incredible speed so top quality gear and lines is highly recommended to give you every chance to land this tough fish.
