Talang Queenfish

Game Fish

Photo of a beautiful Talang Queenfish (Scomberoides commersonnianus) at uShaka Marine World. An elongated, streamlined, predatory fish of the Indian and west Pacific Oceans, the Talang queenfish may be recognized by its vivid, silvery body and relatively small fins.

This powerful fish has rather short anal and dorsal fins, with the rear of the fins being reduced to just small spines. They have a blunt snout and a large mouth, armed with several rows of fine teeth. The attractive, bright, silver body has five to eight distinct dark blotches also run above the lateral line.
