The Family Carangidae includes diverse marine fishes that are ecologically and economically important species such as the jacks, scads, trevallies, pampano, amberjacks and queenfishes. Most are either deep bodied neretic bottom feeders or more slender neretic planktivores. A few species such as the rainbow runner and pilot fish are pelagic, typically found in the open ocean.

In India., fishes of the Family Carangidae are widely distributed along both coasts of India.
