Carangids formed nearly 5.5% of the marine fish production from Indian waters during 2004-2010. Fishery was supported by 60 species with 14 at commercial scale. Most of the species exhibit changes in morphologic/meristic characteristics and colour patterns with growth and some even exhibit sexual dimorphism. Taxonomy of each species and species specific variations in morphology, meristic counts as well as colour patterns with growth and sexual maturity were studied and based on very striking… 
Fishery Status and Taxonomy of the Carangids (Pisces) in the Northern Arabian Sea Coast of Pakistan
The objectives of this study were i) to evaluate number of existing members of the family Carangidae in the area ii) to establish a distinguishable and lucid key based on the taxonomic
Indo-West Pacific species of Trachinotus with spots on their sides as adults, with description of a new species endemic to the Marquesas Islands (Teleostei: Carangidae).
TLDR
A new species, Trachinotus macrospilus, is described from the Marquesas Islands where it is endemic and the only species of the genus present.
Morphological and Molecular Systematic of Carangids (Genus: Alepes ), with New Record of Alepes vari from the Iraqi Marine Waters,Northwest Arabian Gulf
TLDR
Morphometric and meristic characteristics and DNA fingerprint analysis were applied to identify three species of Carangidss belonging to the genus Alepes from Iraqi marine waters, during the period from January 2014 to June 2015.
First Evidence of Cryptic Species Diversity and Population Structuring of Selaroides leptolepis in the Tropical Western Pacific
TLDR
The present study encouraged the application of lineage-specific management efforts, as the lineages are experiencing different evolutionary pressures, and accurate knowledge of the species’ genetic distribution is fundamental in protecting its diversity and assuring stock sustainability.
Morphometric parameters of the sagitta otolith among four carangids species in the Persian Gulf
TLDR
The results suggest that length and weight of sagittal otolith are likely suitable indicators for fish fork length in all studied species.
