Spine dorsali (totale): 4 - 5; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 8; Spine anali 3; Raggi anali molli: 9. Greenish dorsally; flanks and abdomen silvery; small gold patch on upper operculum and iris; caudal fin bright blue, pectoral fins yellow with dark blue spot dorsally at origin (Ref. 9812).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Inhabit coastal waters, including estuaries and rivers (Ref. 5213). Young fish frequent estuaries and also ascend rivers and coastal creeks (Ref. 2847). Feed on algae, diatoms, detritus, and crustaceans (Ref. 9812). Oviparous, eggs are pelagic and non-adhesive (Ref. 205). Caught during the spawning period (Ref. 9812). Other methods include the use of stakenets, pouch nets, and barrier nets (Ref. 9812).
