The Jack Mackerel, "Chicharro" in Portuguese, is quite common in the Atlantic Ocean and throughout the Mediterranean. This species is normally found in big shoals all along the Portuguese coast, at moderate depths, feeding on small crustaceans, fish and mollusks. The Jack Mackerel undertakes considerable migrations and reproduces between December and April.
