Description

Cornish Jack (Mormyrops anguilloides) is a nocturnal schooling predator. Adults prefer deep and calm waters and tend to stay near boulders and other underwater barriers. A distinctive feature of this fish is its ability to generate a weak electrical discharge for the purpose of navigation, communication, and searching for prey. Its diet is predominantly fish and sometimes crustaceans. At night, these fish go hunting in small schools near rocky areas of the bottom about 65 ft(20 m) from their daytime dwelling spots. Although this is a nocturnal fish, you can successfully land one at sunrise and sunset. The Cornish Jack grows up to be 60 inches(150 cm) in length and weighs up to 33 lbs(15 kg)!
