Can someone tell me what kind of fish is this? This shinny little fish is about 4" long.
This was from GEM (Gulf Exploration Mission-2003) trip we scooped it up with dipnet.

Hey Bret

WElcome and thank you for sign up.
Untill today, we still couldn't find out what kind of fish it was.

If you have fishing video and pictures, please post it on the Gallery.

Looks like a tinker mackerel..? Not sure though, but Bret is right. A mac! You can always call it bait!

I think it is Scomber japonicus, the chub mackerel. Some folks do call it a tinker mackerel in some parts. They are actually very common deep in the Gulf but will run on the surface as well.
