The name says it all: the banded rudderfish has prominent bands along the side of its body. This member of the Jack family spends its life offshore eating shrimp and small fish.

The flavor of the banded rudderfish has been described as “clean and firm and beautiful.” It’s been compared to swordfish and cobia – sweet and mild. You can use banded rudderfish in recipes that call for amberjack, since their flavor and texture is similar.
