Northern sennets (Sphyraena borealis) are found in the western Atlantic from Massachusetts to southern Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. The southern sennet (S. picudilla) is found in Bermuda, Florida and the Bahamas south to Uruguay.
Southern sennets (S. picudilla) are found near the surface, sometimes in large aggregations. These fish rarely move away from the shore, often preferring to stay near the rocky bottom.
Northern sennets (Sphyraena borealis) grow to a maximum of 18 inches.
