    Jack mackerels are marine fishes in the Trachurus genus of the Carangidae family. The type species of the genus is the Atlantic horse mackerel, Trachurus trachurus. The name of the genus is derived from the Greek word trachys, meaning "rough", and the Greek word oura, meaning "tail". Some species, such as the Inca, are harvested in seine nets, and in some cases overfishing occurs. It is often used in Japanese cuisine, where it is called aji.
