Barracuda

Barracudas are known for their large size, fearsome appearance and ferocious behaviour. They are snake-like in appearance, with prominent, sharp-edged, fang-like teeth, and have large, pointed heads.

They are found near the top of the water and near coral reefs and sea grasses. They are a social species and large groups of Sphyraena sphyraena numbering between ten and two hundred individuals have been recorded.

The European barracuda, Sphyraena sphyraena, can be found in the Mediterranean basin and the warmer waters of the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, like Madeira. It is a large species, normally around 30-60 cm in length and 6kg of weight, although there are records of animals growing up to 165 cm and 12kg of weight.
