Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Pelagic, coastal species which can fly over long distances. It is thought that this behavior is a means to escape danger. This flying fish is not commercially exploited although it is very good to eat (Ref. 5377 ). Spawns during summer in Italian waters. Eggs with filaments over the entire surface (Ref. 6523 ).
