Inhabits surface waters where it feeds on almost all forms of fish and zooplankton. Also feeds on crustaceans and squids (Ref. 2850). Occurs within a temperature range of 21° to 30°C and salinities of 31.0 ppt (Ref. 26). Spawns in the open sea and probably approximate to the coast when the water temperature rises (Ref. 9293). Attracting devices such as floating bundles of bamboo reeds or cork planks are used to concentrate dolphinfish before the nets are set.
