The leatherjacket fish is a species of jack in the Carangidae family. Leather jack may also refer to other members of the Carangidae, such as the pilot fish.
Traditionally, the leather jacket has not been eaten, but recently, with large-scale farming of the fish, it has become common at market. The fish has a mild, oily taste similar to Spanish mackerel or bluefish. It has occasionally been the prey to Blue Swimmer Crab, as juvenile fish in sea grass beds.
Approximately 750g per piece.
