Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 4 - 5; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 8-9; Espinas anales 3; Radios blandos anales: 8 - 10. Bluish brown or green dorsally; flanks and abdomen silvery; dusky spots on upper row of scales, giving indistinct longitudinal stripes (Ref. 9812). Dorsal and upper lobe of caudal fin with dark-blue tip. Anal, pelvic, and pectoral fins yellow. Pectorals also with dark blue spot dorsally at origin (Ref. 9812). Pectoral-fin axil scale very long.

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Inhabit coastal waters but enters estuaries and rivers where they feed on microalgae, filamentous algae, forams, diatoms, and detritus associated with sand and mud (Ref. 9812). Form schools. Oviparous, eggs are pelagic and non-adhesive (Ref. 205). Also caught using stakenets, barrier nets, and pouch nets during spawning; also taken as bycatch (Ref. 9812).
