Where to Catch Silver Trevally
Silver trevally is a schooling fish that may be found in estuary and coastal environments. At a depth of 10 - 230 metres, they can be discovered. Adult trevally can be found on inshore reefs, wide sand or gravel grounds, or in big bays and inlets. Estuaries, bays, and shallow continental shelf seas are common habitats for juveniles. Older fish occasionally congregate near the surface in deeper waters off the continental shelf, which might be a sign of spawning.
