Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Gregarious fish; immature ones often occur in large schools. Lives mostly on the outer shelf, but moves inshore to depths of 50 m or less for spawning. Feeds on benthic crustaceans but also on small fish, mollusks and polychaetes (Ref. 3663). Caught as a bycatch, used as food fish (Ref. 35388).
