Masaba / Chub Mackerel
Scomber japonicus
(Houttuyn,1782)

P1020399

One of the most abundant specimen in Japanese saltwater. Chub mackerels are caught closer to shore than its kin, blue mackerels. Blitz made by this fish often turns out to be feeding on plankton, so it is important to identify the size first.
