Mackerel is the most common species, it is she who arrives in large quantities on the shelves of stores. The fish of this species is more expensive than the southern one, because it has a higher nutritional value. It is distinguished by a blue-green back with a characteristic pattern of numerous, slightly curved stripes. The lower body and belly are white.
Interesting: The coloring of the mackerel allows it to remain invisible. When the fish floats to the surface, it merges with the water and the birds cannot see it. And the fish swimming below do not see it due to the disguise under the color of the sky, as it is seen in the water column.
