Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Juveniles and young adults occur in mangrove estuaries and in the lower reaches of freshwater streams. Eventually they migrate offshore to deeper reef areas, sometimes penetrating to depths in excess of 100 m. Mainly nocturnal, this species feeds mostly on fishes and crustaceans. This is an important market species throughout the Indo-Pacific region, but never found in large quantities. [details]
