Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rivers and creeks of low to high current velocity (Ref. 36880). Found along sandy shores and over mud bottoms in shallow water, quite common in brackish mangrove-lined lagoons. Often ascends rivers more than 100 miles from the sea. Feeds on crustaceans and small fishes. Marketed fresh (Ref. 3798).

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

Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205).
