You’re about to see why giant trevallies are so difficult to catch.
Giant trevallies are some of the most powerful apex predators in the ocean. They can grow to massive sizes and swim and strike at incredible speeds.

It might seem like an all-you-can-eat buffet for the trevallies, but the sardines are pretty quick themselves.
Giant trevallies are found throughout the Indo-Pacific. The ancient Hawaiians referred to these fish as the warriors of the sea. You can learn more about the Giant Trevally in our list of the 10 most sought after saltwater game fish species.
