The Atlantic Thread Herring is characterized by a wide bellied body, that has a green or darker topside fading into a lighter or silvery underside. A long thread like streamer extend behind him from the base of his dorsal fin.

These fish are found at both inshore, nearshore and offshore waters.

A bait tipped trot line or cast net make for the best method of catching these fish.
