Donating to the museum[edit]

The information board in front of the tank that houses the giant trevally says the following:

"Though you wouldn't guess it because of their size, giant trevallys are actually a type of mackerel. Unlike normally slim and sleek mackerels, giant trevallys have wide, silver bodies. Surprisingly, though, these fish cannot tolerate the cold, so they tend to live in warmer places. Their jaw strength is great enough to bite off a person's finger, so be very careful when fishing for them!"

Further information[edit]

The giant trevally is a large fish located in the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. It has a typical silver color, but males may turn black as they grow older.
