Note 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Occurs in coastal areas, entering mangrove areas and estuaries, and freshwater as well (e.g. in the Pangani River, Tanzania), thus apparently fully euryhaline. Marketed fresh and may be dried or salted (Ref. 5284). Regarded as an excellent bait in the tuna fishery. [details]
