English: amberjack, jack
Spanish: medregal listado.
The lesser amberjack has an olive green or brownish back above the lateral line and is silver below the lateral line. A dark olive brown diagonal stripe extends from the mouth across both eyes to about the first dorsal fin. It is very similar in appearance to the greater amberjack but has a deeper body profile and a proportionately larger eye, and eight spines in the first dorsal fin.
The size of this species vary markedly, from up to 12 inches in length to under 10 pounds.
