From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription May be encountered by drop-offs, shallow and gently sloping reef or lagoon waters (Ref. 1602). Known to undertake lengthy longshore migrations, but permanently resident populations also seem to exist. Found in small schools (Ref. 9684). Feeds primarily on small fishes like anchovies, clupeids, carangids, squids and penaeoid shrimps. A lipid-soluble toxin, similar to ciguatoxin has been found in the flesh of specimens caught on the east coast of Queensland, Australia. Taken throughout its range by commercial, artisanal and recreational fisheries. Also caught with bamboo stake traps, midwater trawls, and by trolling (Ref. 9684). Marketed mainly fresh; commonly made into fish balls; also dried-salted (Ref. 9684) and frozen, smoked and canned (Ref. 9987). [details]
