Atlantic mackerel have a slender, streamlined body that narrows considerably toward their tail, which is strongly forked. Their coloration is metallic-blue dorsally, becoming a lighter silver on their flanks, and silvery-white on their underside. They are distinguished by a pattern of wavy, dark vertical bars that begin on their dorsal surface and end on their mid-flanks. Atlantic mackerel grow to about 40 centimetres and weigh up to 800 grams. Can live up to 15 years old and more in some cases.
