Caranx hippos, also known as crevalle jack is a migratory, coastal species that is distributed worldwide at subtropical and tropical latitudes. Except for the development and ecology of juveniles, little is known about their life history.
Larvae and early juveniles are pelagic; they are found, occasionally in association with jellyfish, in offshore waters. From April through November, juveniles and small adults inhabit estuaries that exhibit moderate to high salinities (Springer and Woodburn 1960). Occasionally, adults occur in estuaries, but they are more often found on the continental shelf.
