Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Schooling by size is well developed and initiates at approximately 3 cm. May also form schools with @Sarda chiliensis@, @Trachurus symmetricus@ and @Sardinops sagax@ (Ref. 9340). Found near the surface of inshore and offshore waters (Ref. 11035). Feeds on copepods and other crustaceans, small pelagic fishes and squids. Eggs and larvae are pelagic. May migrate north during the summer and south during winter (to spawn) (Ref. 9340). Is preyed upon by tuna, marlins, other big fishes, sharks and pelicans (Ref. 9340). In St. Helena, generally captured at night when it moves near the surface to feed but occasionally caught during daytime in deep water. Also taken with encircling nets, set nets, beach seines and troll lines (Ref. 9340). Commercially cultured in Japan. Marketed fresh, frozen, smoked, salted and occasionally canned (Ref. 9684). Eaten fried, broiled and baked (Ref. 9988). [details]
