    I think it's aussies who like calling the Brassies tea-leaf trevally. The local Seychelleous call them carang piece. Also know as a green spot or green back.

    This is a Tea Leaf

    It was a long time ago, but I recall the fish looking like a Bluefin, except that the spots and the back are a distinctive burgundyish coppery colour.

    The body was shorter and stockier than a Brassey.

    Yip, common fish names can lead to some serious confusion!
