The blue mackerel, Japanese mackerel, Pacific mackerel, slimy mackerel, or spotted chub mackerel, Scomber australasicus, a fish of the family Scombridae, is found in tropical and subtropical waters of the Pacific Ocean, the Red Sea, the Gulf of Oman and the Gulf of Aden, in surface waters down to 200 m (660 ft). In Japanese, it is known as goma saba (胡麻鯖 sesame mackerel). Its length is between 30 and 65 cm (12 and 25 in), and weight over a kilogram (2 lbs).

While relatively small in size, pound for pound mackerel score high for their fighting ability. The Pacific Blue mackerel whilst easy to fillet and skin can be difficult to debone and care must be taken not to damage the soft flesh, as a result it is known to be finicky to clean, dress, and prepare for consumption.
