Info

Caranx latus, also known as horse eye jack, are found in the western Atlantic from the coast of New Jersey southeast to Bermuda, in the Gulf of Mexico to the north coast of Brazil.

Horse eye jack are similar in body shape Caranx caninus, but her head is less steep. Typical is a small blackish spot on the edge of the gill cover, usually poorly defined or even not exist. They show no spots on the pectoral fin, the tail fin is yellow. Juvenils show often wider dark stripes on the body. For a reef aquarium, they are much too large (75 cm) and are therefore unsuitable.
