While hardly a dozen species of Spanish mackerels or seerfishes are recognisable at present from the warmer waters of the Indo-Pacific and the Atlantic, only recently has the nomenclature used to denote these, attained any degree of stability. Though some workers may be still inclined to treat Scomberomorus Lacepede, and Acanthocybium Gill, under two separate families or subfamilies, for reasons given elsewhere (Jones and Silas, 1960, 376), it is felt that for all practical purposes it will be desirable to treat these as two distinct genera under the subfamily Scomberomorinae of the family Scombridae.
