Description Presumably schooling occurring mostly (or always ?) close inshore and entering bays and estuaries. Recorded at a temperature range of 26.0-29.0 °C in the Trinity Inlet system, Australia (Ref. 4959). Feeds mainly on crustaceans (zoae larvae, amphipods, @Acetes@). More data needed, including some functional explanation for the extraordinarily long maxillae. May be caught using ringnets (Ref. 5213). Used as bait in the tuna fishery in the South Pacific. [details]
