Biologie     Glossaire (ex. epibenthic)

Inhabits the sand/rock interface; territorial males construct bowers on sand slopes near rocky areas with distances between bowers approximately 2-7m; females gather in large schools, sometimes numbering more than a hundred individuals; foraging schools are about 2-3m off the bottom and feed on plankton in the water column and on benthic invertebrates; mouthbrooding females are found close to the bottom (Ref. 57549).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturité | Reproduction | Frai | Œufs | Fécondité | Larves

Builds bowers on a sand slope near rocky area at depth of 16-25 m. Bowers are circular or oval in shape with slight depression on the center and a surrounding sand mound. These contain a stone usually at the deeper margin of the sand mound. The depression is usually deepest near the stone and spawning takes place at this deepest part.
