Slimy (or Blue) Mackerel (Scomber australasieus) Photographs and Information



Also known as blue mackerel, Japanese mackerel, Pacific mackerel, slimy mackerel, or spotted chub mackerel,

Blue mackerel (or Slimey Mackerel) are caught commercially by small purse seines for use as both live and dead bait in domestic tuna fisheries.  They are also caught with ring nets and in otter trawls in New South Wales.

They are found in waters of southern half of Australia but are also found throughout the Western Pacific Ocean, Hawaii and the eastern Pacific.

Juveniles and small adult fish usually inhabit inshore waters, while larger adult fish form schools in 40-200m of water over the continental shelf.

They spawn in summer.

Blue Mackerel is very good smoked.

Angling for Slimy Mackerel :

Slimy Mackerel can be found around rocks, wharves and jetties in bays and inshore as well as offshore. Blue Mackerel can also be caught using imitation fishing flies and small baitfish flies, metal lures, soft plastics and other small lures. One of the easiest ways to catch Blue Mackerel is using a light hand line with a small hook, you don't have to weight the line, but you can use a small lead running sinker if you want.

 

 


Cooking Blue Mackerel:

Blue Mackerel is usually sold whole, gilled and gutted. The meat is dark and has a strong flavour, moderate to high oiliness and a dry firm flesh with large flakes. It is excellent smoked, can be wrapped in foil and baked or barbequed. Recipes for mackerel.


Commercial Fishing for Slimy Mackerel:

Blue mackerel (Scomber australasicus) are caught commercially by small purse seines for use as both live and dead bait in domestic tuna fisheries. Blue mackerel occur off all states of Australia except the Northern Territory. The species inhabits inshore and continental shelf waters, with older fish occurring further offshore. Commercial landings of blue mackerel since the mid 1980s have generally been between 300 and 500 tonnes annually but show considerable fluctuations. These fluctuations are likely to reflect changes in stock availability due to recruitment variability and may also reflect changes in the distribution of fish due to oceanographic processes.

Buyers, processors and sellers of Blue Mackerel Scomber australasicus are listed.
