Spine dorsali (totale): 5; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 7-9; Spine anali 3; Raggi anali molli: 8 - 10. Olive-brown dorsally, silvery or white ventrally (Ref. 9812). Distal margins of dorsal fins and caudal fin dusky (Ref. 9812). No axillary scale on the pectoral fins.

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

School in shallow coastal waters; enter lagoons, estuaries, and rivers to feed (Ref. 9812). Feed on plant detritus, microalgae, minute benthic organisms, and organic matter in sand and mud; juveniles feed on planktonic algae (Ref. 9812). Oviparous, eggs are pelagic and non-adhesive (Ref. 205). Also caught with stakenets and is marketed fresh (Ref. 9812).
