The Bluefin Trevally is widely distributed in the tropical and subtropical waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans. The flesh is firm and very good table fare, prized over most of the other species of ulua.
Also known as Vatta, Trevally Jest is a well renowned fried fish in the south. Trevally is a large and fleshy fish and is very tasty too. It is good for preparing pickles. Trevally fry, mappas, fish molee, mulaku chaar, in coconut milk or in coconut gravy are just some of the delicious recipes.
Bluefin Trevally is easily recognised by their electric blue fins, tapered snout and numerous blue and black spots on their sides. Juveniles lack these obvious colours and must be identified by more detailed anatomical features such as fin ray and scute counts.
