In New Leaf

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium lists information about this fish. When interacted with, it reads:

"Though you wouldn't guess it because of their size, giant trevallys are actually a type of mackerel. Unlike normally slim and sleek mackerels, giant trevallys have wide, sliver bodies. Surprisingly, though, these fish cannot tolerate the cold, so they tend to live in warmer places. Their jaw strength is great enough to bite off a person's finger, so be very careful when fishing for them!"

Further information

Caranx ignobilis
The giant trevally is a tropical species of trevally that is found throughout the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The species begins grey but darkens sometimes to black with age. The species is most popular as a gamefish, but in the past it was also seen as a commercial fish albeit rarely. Ultimately selling the fish became illegal after investigations confirmed severe cases of ciguatera poisoning resulting from consuming the fish.
