Trophic Strategy

provided by Fishbase
Occurs down to 9 m depth and forming quite large schools which seems to break up and reform rather rapidly; found principally over mud flats, apparently not making long migrations along sandy or rocky areas to other suitable mud flats, although other migrations occur.
