Etymology: Argyrosomus: Greek, argyros = silvered, silver + Greek, soma = body (Ref. 45335);  inodorus: Name from the Latin 'inodorus' meaning without smell (first suspected of being a different species because it lacked the strong brassy/metallic smell that is typical of A. japonicus found in South African waters.

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Between the Kei River and Cape Agulhas, this species rarely enters estuaries or the surf zone, but becomes more abundant in the surf zone on the west coast of South Africa. Restricted to a depth of 1-20 m in Namibia, apparently due to anoxic conditions beyond this depth. Highly regarded as a table fish. Marketed mostly fresh, but sometimes frozen (Ref. 11025).
