Exhibit a strong tendency to school in surface waters with birds, drifting objects, sharks, whales and may show a characteristic behaviour like jumping, feeding, foaming, etc. Feeds on fishes, crustaceans, cephalopods and molluscs. Spawns in batches all year long in tropical waters and from spring to early fall in subtropical waters. It is thought to live for at least 8-12 yrs. Also taken by trolling on light tackle using plugs, spoons, feathers, or strip bait (Ref. 9684).
