Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14-17; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 19 - 26. Body moderately elongate and compressed (Ref. 189). Snout short, about 2/3 eye diameter; maxilla relatively long, tip bluntly rounded, reaching to pre-operculum; gill cover canals of walkeri-type (Ref. 189). Anal fin fairly long, its origin below about middle of dorsal fin base. A broad silver stripe along flank, equal or greater than eye diameter below dorsal fin (Ref. 189).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A schooling species found inshore. Most likely anadromous, entering estuaries and freshwater. Feeds on crustacean larvae or small invertebrates (Ref. 12225).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Both sexes at maturity have a large amount of visceral and intermuscular fat (Ref. 189). Spawn in school (Ref. 205).
