False Albacore (Euthynnus alleteratus)

Watercolor and colored pencil

This distinctively marked relative of the tuna feeds throughout the day and therefore grows fairly rapidly, reaching up to 3 feet and over 20 pounds. Adults prey on squid, shrimp and other fish, such as mackerels, anchovies and menhaden. Easily recognized by the vivid wavy lines on the dorsal side, this migratory species often travels in schools and can be found in brackish or coastal water. It is a fast and powerful gamefish, fairly common in Atlantic waters, though it is not as tasty as some of its relatives, such as the Yellowfin Tuna.
