Color ranges from black iridescent to bluish green with silvery sides. The body is streamlined with a tapered head. No black pigment present on the front of the first dorsal fin and lacks wavy vertical lines like those found on Wahoo. The lateral line starts high and drops sharply below the second dorsal fin. Young fish often have yellowish spots, similar to the Spanish mackerel.
