Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs where the bottom is sand, sand-and-stone and sand-and-silt. Stays at a depth range of 3-15 m during the winter months. Spawns from mid May until the end of June, over sand and stone bottom, 3-5 m depth, as well as in shallow inlets and tributary mouths. Eggs are deposited under stones and are guarded by the male. Males are larger than females. (Ref. 2058).
