Yellowtail (hamachi at the sushi bar) is another Jack - like Pompano it's more than worthy of the table - a prized target species in SoCal even more so than our Amberjack.
I found this on Horse Eye as food:
· Although edible, the horse-eye is not known for its taste. However, its quality of meat may improve by cutting off its tail and bleeding the fish immediately after catching.
· Along with other jack, horse-eye jack have been associated with ciguatera poisoning, which is caused by consuming a fish whose flesh is infected with a potent neurotoxin called ciguatoxin.
· Considered a friendly fish to humans, horse-eye jacks will often approach scuba divers.
