almaco jack/ SERIOLA RIVOLIANA
Explanation:
la serviola o pez limon es de muy gran tama/o, incluso mayor, pudiendo sobrepasar los 50 kilogramos de peso y los 2 metros de longitud. Es un pez muy veloz que suele acercarse a las costa en primavera. al igual que el palometon .Es un pez carnivoro que ataca y persigue insistentemente a sus presas, preferentemente a las lisas, bogas etc.
Which took me to:Other names — amberjack, greater amberjack, longfin yellowtail; French: seriole limon; Spanish: pez limon, palometa, medregal, huayaipe, fortuno, cavallas.



A deep-bodied amberjack and a member of the Carangidae family, the almaco jack is an excellent and widely distributed sportfish.
