Abstract
    Some trawl-caught king and Spanish mackerel (Scomberomorus cavalla and S. maculatus) were examined as regards their diet. Data indicate both to be carnivorous, primarily piscivorous, as juveniles. Engraulidae (Anchoa sp) and Clupeidae (Brevoortia and Opisthonema oglinum) are the dominant food organisms in the diet of small trawl-caught mackerel.
