Small groups and medium-sized shoals are fairly common, often observed skipping over surface water. They are heavily preyed upon by gamefish such as tuna and billfish. Scomberesox means 'resembling a mackerel and a pike' and saurus is 'lizard-like'.

Distribution: The open ocean waters of Namibia.

Diet: Small, planktonic animals such as larval and juvenile fishes.

Colouration: Metallic-blue upperparts, silvery flanks and a whitish belly. Greyish fins are often tinged with yellow.
