The Indian threadfish (Alectis indica) (also known as the Indian threadfin, diamond trevally, mirror fish and plumed trevally) is a large species of coastal marine fish of the jack family, Carangidae. The species is widespread in the waters of the tropical Indo-West Pacific Ocean, ranging from east Africa to India, Asia, Indonesia and Australia. Adult fish tend to inhabit coastal waters over reefs down to 100 m in depth, while juveniles inhabit a variety of environments including estuaries and seagrass beds. The Indian threadfish is similar to the other two species in the genus Alectis, with a slight concavity in the profile of the head the most obvious distinguishing feature. It is a large species, growing to 165 cm and 25 kg in weight. The species is carnivorous, consuming fishes, cephalopods and crustaceans. The Indian threadfin is of minor commercial importance, and has been the subject of aquaculture in Singapore. Order: Perciformes, Suborder: Percoidei, Superfamily: Percoidea, Family: Carangidae.
