Jack mackerel regularly live years and weigh 4 to 5 pounds. For fish with such a long life span, they become sexually mature at a very young age. They are quite common near the islands and banks off southern California up to 3 or 4 years of age, and then presumably move offshore or northward.

    Pacific Mackerel. Pacific Mackerel (Scomber japonicus) are a temperate and subtropical schooling fish found throughout the eastern Pacific Ocean. They are one of the most abundant sport-caught fish off California, and support an important commercial fishery as well. Pacific Mackerel Landings; Management and Regulations; Jack Mackerel.

Jack mackerel landings from southern California. sampled by the California Department of Fish and. Game show a high degree of variability in recruit. ment success. The period from to is ex. amined for variations in landings due to changes in. fishing effort of the multispecies purse seine fishery.

California landings of bluefin tuna, Thunnus thynnus, were sampled for age and size composition from through Scales were used to determine the age. Landings primarily consisted of 1- and 2-year old fish.
