This streamlined, fast-swimming pelagic fish resides in tropical surface waters across the globe. It resides in large shoals (up to 50,000 fish), feeding on other fish, crustaceans, cephalopods and mollusks. It is an important prey species for large pelagic fishes and sharks and is also a central commercial and game fish. The Skipjack Tuna is dark blue or purple along the back, while the belly and lower sides are silvery and have between 4 and 6 dark but broken lines running the length of the body. Like other tunas, the skipjack tuna has a fusiform (reminds of the shape of an American football, tapered at both ends) body shape. It has two dorsal fins; the first with spines. It has a single row of small conical teeth.
Skipjack is the most fecund of the main commercial tunas, and its population is currently considered sustainable against its present consumption. Its fishing is still controversial due to the methodology; with rod and reel or fishery options being promoted as ecologically preferable.
