The Chevron Barracuda size averages between 30-60 cm but can be as big as 165 cm.

These fish are carnivores and extremely skilled predators. Their diet consists mostly of other smaller fish, such as mullets, snappers and grunts. With their keen eyesight, they are attracted to shiny, metallic objects which remind them of fish scales, so avoid wearing jewellery when diving.

All species of barracudas hunt with very speed at around 50 km/h and accuracy, using their natural surroundings to set up ambushes for unsuspecting prey.
