Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults are common in prawn trawling grounds and are most abundant closer to the coast. They feed predominantly on benthic prey consisting mainly of crustaceans and teleosts (Ref. 6908). They exhibit diel vertical migration, possibly following the movement of crustaceans along the water column. Continuous spawning during the year (Ref. 6904). Juveniles are often encountered in estuaries. Caught mainly on hook-and-line and by spearing; also with gill nets and other artisanal gear. This species is an excellent sports fish (Ref. 9894).
