Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in coastal areas and estuaries. May ascend upstream into the freshwater tidal zone of the Mekong (Ref. 12693 ). Inhabits muddy and sandy bottoms of continental shelves. Feeds mainly on benthic invertebrates (Ref. 3391 ). Utilized as a food fish (Ref. 3391 ). Marketed fresh in the Mekong delta (Ref. 12693 ).
