Description Found mostly in shallow reef waters where it forms large schools. Feeds on crustaceans and fishes, particularly clupeoids (@Sardinella@ and @Thrissocles@), but also other fishes such as @Sphyraena@ and @Balistes@. Marketed canned and frozen (Ref. 9684). Its flesh is mild and pleasantly flavoured, but brushed with lemon juice prior to cooking to remove the ammonia-like smell (Ref. 9684). [details]
