Biologie     Glossaire (ex. epibenthic)

Pelagic in neritic and oceanic waters, sometimes near the bottom (Ref. 5217, 58302). Small juveniles may be found near the shore (Ref. 5217); adults near bottom to depths of 60 m (Ref. 26938). Feed on sedentary or slow moving crustaceans and occasionally feed on small crabs and fishes (Ref. 9283). Juveniles are attractive aquarium fish, but do not do well in captivity (Ref. 12484). Excellent food fish (Ref. 9626); marketed fresh or dried or salted (Ref. 9283).
