     < Don't Mackerel exist
    in US waters? >
     They do exist here. But tinned mackerel, common overseas, are not commonly
    eaten in the US. It's considered somewhere between a junk fish and an
    aquired taste because it is so strong a flavor. Tuna, swordfish, fluke and
    flouder, sole, sea bass, all are more popular in stores and on menus.
    Catfish in the southern US mainly, with other arguments about whether farmed
    catfish is a better (more delicate) or worse (less flavor) choice than
    the real thing. Lots of farmed salmon, which is like white bread when
    compared to fresh pacific salmon of any kind, and canned salmon too.
     We'd speak of a "fishing line" hung over the stern. But a  mackerel line?
    Dunno, what makes a mackerel line different from any plain fishing line?
