Redirect[edit]

Changed the direction of the redirect to Carangidae from White Trevally. Many other members of the family are referred to by the term (like "barb" for Cyprinidae and "tetra" for Characidae). Maybe in the future, we could change this into a disambiguation page/small article for those carangids commonly called trevally. Shrumster 20:39, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

So is the White Trevally the one we eat? Most people looking up "trevally" aren't going to be interested in a family of 100+ fish, most of which are red-linked, or not edible. I want to know about the common trevally that one sees in the fish shop or at the table, and there's nothing on the Carangidae page to point me to where I can find that information.

As stated on talk:Carangidae, the White Trevally is the prominent species of trevally eaten in Southern Australia and New Zealand. In most other countries, there are a wide variety of other speceies marketed as trevally. And i agree with Shrumster's suggestion of an article dedicated to the "trevallies", even this is a paraphyletic and biologically meaningless name, it is too widely used to be ignored.
