Because of their abundance, they are considered an important element of the food web, particularly as forage for other species of commercial interest. It grows larger than @A. rochei@. Feeds on small fish, squids, planktonic crustaceans (megalops), and stomatopod larvae (Ref. 5213). Preyed upon by larger fishes, including other tunas (Ref. 9987). Also caught with troll lines. Marketed fresh and frozen (Ref. 9340), also utilized dried/salted, smoked and canned (Ref. 9987). [details]
