Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabit shallow sandy or silty areas (seagrass substrata) of coastal and inner lagoon reefs (Ref. 9710 , 54393 ). Occur singly or in schools (Ref. 5213 ). Large adults usually at moderate depths to about 30 m (Ref. 48636 ). Feed on benthic invertebrates; the diet including small crabs, amphipods, shrimps, small octopuses, polychaete worms, and small fishes (Ref. 54393 ). Marketed fresh (Ref. 5284 ).
