The amberjack (sometimes referred to as AJ) is a type of fish found in the warmer parts of the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean. Despite being classified under the umbrella of amberjack, there is quite a varied amount of amberjack types, ranging from greater amberjacks found in the Atlantic to the lesser amberjacks, banded rudderfish. Yellowtail, and the Almaco jack.
As the name suggests, the greater amberjacks are the largest of all the jacks. They are recognized by the dark stripes extending from their nose to their dorsal fins and the lack of scutes. These fish weigh about forty pounds and are typically found in rocky reefs or near debris.
While the lesser amberjacks are smaller, their eyes are proportionately larger and their bodies are deeper than their greater siblings. These fish are identified by their olive-green to brownish-black colors with silver sides. Despite being under ten pounds, lesser amberjacks are strong predators, often feeding on crustaceans, squid, and other fish.
For avid fishers, amberjacks are known for putting a strong fight. In fact, many amateur anglers often find themselves with broken lines when they go toe-to-toe with these sea dwellers.
