This recently published finding suggests that these native predatory fish may provide a form of biocontrol on populations of the invasive mullet species in a traditional Hawaiian fishpond.Jacks and barracuda in He?eia fishpond were found to feed on Australian mullet, an invasive species introduced to Oahu waters in the 1950s.
