Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 0; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 16-19; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 16 - 21. Diagnosis: Body moderately deep, belly fairly sharply keeled (Ref. 188). Lower gillrakers 30-40 (Ref. 188). A black or golden spot behind gill opening; upper part of pectoral fin dusky; caudal fin pale yellow with dusky hind margin (Ref. 188). Sardinella rouxi resembles S. maderensis, which has more gillrakers and a grey caudal fin, its tips almost black (Ref. 188). It is distinguished from small S. aurita by having 1 unbranched and 7 branched pelvic fin rays vs. 1 unbranched and 8 branched in S. aurita, and no black spot on hind part of gill cover (Ref. 188).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Sardinella rouxi is found in inshore waters and along beaches, forming schools (Ref. 188).
