Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Occurs in shallow inshore waters, but also in deeper waters, forming large schools. Feeds mainly on calanoid copepods when juvenile, gradually switching to phytoplankton at about 5 cm SL. Spawns in coastal waters within 80 km from shore, from early spring to late summer (October to April in southern African waters, with a peak in November/December in the south, but in February off Namibia). The eggs are elliptical. [details]
