Caranx heberi occurs in coastal, clear and open waters.
Adult fishes of this species often form small aggregations above rocky reefs and are rarely seen in turbid or shore waters.
This prickly mackerel has a dark bronze to yellowish-green body with a silver-bronze to yellowish-greenish hue on the ventral side.
The upper end of the caudal fin usually stands out with a black syringe.
Sting mackerels are feared and fast hunters in the reef, they strike smaller reef fish in a flash and often prey on weaker or sick specimens.
Mackerels should remain in the sea to do their part of the health police.
