The skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis) is a medium-sized fish in the tuna family, Scombridae. It is a cosmopolitan pelagic fish found in tropical and warm-temperate waters. The skipjack tuna is a streamlined, fast-swimming pelagic fish, common in tropical waters throughout the world, where it inhabits surface waters in large shoals (up to 50,000 fish), feeding on fish, crustaceans, cephalopods, and mollusks. It is an important prey species for sharks and large pelagic fishes and is often used as live bait when fishing for marlin. The skipjack tuna has no scales, except on the lateral line and the corselet (a band of large, thick scales forming a circle around the body behind the head). It commonly reaches fork lengths up to 80 cm and a mass of 8–10 kg.
