The Indian mackerel is found in warm shallow waters along the coasts of the Indian and Western Pacific oceans. The body of the Indian mackerel is moderately deep, and the head is longer than the body depth. The maxilla are partly concealed, covered by the lacrimal bone, but extend till around the hind margin of the eye.
