The permit was first described by the “father of taxonomy”, Carl Linnaeus in his tenth edition of the work Systema Naturae, which was published in 1758. He originally classified it as Labrus falcatus, though the fish has since been placed in the genus Trachinotus.[2]

The permit’s genus name, Trachinotus comes from a fusion of the Greek words trachys (τραχύς), which means “rough”, and noton (νῶτον), meaning “back”.[3] The species name for the permit, falcatus, is a Latin adjective, which roughly means “armed with scythes”. This serves as a reference to the permit’s dorsal fin that occasionally protrudes from the water when schools of permit feed near the surface.[2]

Permits can be distinguished by their elongated dorsal fins and anal fin.[2] The dorsal fin is shaped like a scythe. Permit tails are also deeply forked, and their bodies are compressed laterally, making the fish tall and thin when viewed from the front. [2]
