Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits coastal rocky reef areas (Ref. 12460 ) and Posidonia oceanica beds. Like other sparids, it is very active and frequents the surf zone, primarily at dawn (Ref. 13780 ). Feeds on shellfish and other benthic invertebrates which it picks from the sediment (Ref. 5377 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Sexes separate or protandrous (Ref. 4781 ). In some areas, this species occurs as a digynic hermaphrodite, that is, males and females developing from intermediate juveniles (Ref. 52202 ). However, protandry with possible digyny was later confirmed (Ref. 103751
