Description Occurs at a temperature range of 26.0-29.0 °C (Ref. 4959). Forms schools in estuaries and bays; common along beaches, sandbars, mangrove creeks and estuaries; but very rarely captured by prawn trawling vessels. Buries itself in the sand when danger approaches (Ref. 6205). Feeds mainly on consists of polychaete worms, small prawns (Penaeus), other crustacea, shrimps and amphipods (Ref. 6226 & 6227). Sexually mature at 13 to 14 cm length. Marketed fresh and frozen (Ref. 9987). [details]
