Scientific name: Seriola rivoliana
- They are also known at the Pacific Amberjack and Almaco Jack.
- The Amberjack is the largest Jack found in Panama waters and they have an elongated fusiform.
- They are an amber colored fish with a massive body that is lighter on the undersides and they have a very distinctive dark “bandit” stripe running diagonally through its eye obliquely to the front of its dorsal fin, which fades into a black background shortly after collection and is significantly diminished with the age of the fish.
- The Amberjack is a major targeted game species in Panama, however, they are very seasonal and not caught with regularity. They are famous for its slow, steady and consistent “pull,” resembling a major locomotive that can continue for several minutes without a pause. They are considered to be excellent table fare.
