Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults occur in inshore waters of the continental shelf (Ref. 7300). They form large demersal schools over soft bottom habitats at depths shallower than 50 m. Sometimes they ascend into freshwater reaches like the freshwater tidal zone in the Mekong delta (Ref. 12693). Ostracods, gastropods and euphausiids are common prey but small fish are also taken.
