Description Occurs in areas where surface water temperatures are at least below 17°C in coastal bays, harbors, and deep lagoons, usually in some turbid plankton-rich waters. Form schools in coastal waters. Feeds on phytoplankton (diatoms) and small zooplankton (cladocerans, ostracods, larval polychaetes, etc.). Adult individuals feed on macroplankton such as larval shrimps and fish. Generally marketed fresh, frozen, canned, dried-salted, and smoked; also made into fish sauce (Ref. 9684). [details]
