Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


The following observations were reported for this species: adept at burrowing beneath the sand and swims beneath the sand; adults spend the winter months in moderately deep water, gradually move to shallower water in spring and on reaching maturity during summer months, collect in the vicinity of river mouths, where they spawn; the young, as soon as the yolk-sac is absorbed, make their way into the estuaries and gradually work up these even to far beyond the limit of the tide (e.g. in Hunter River); considered a delicious pan-fish, equal in flavor to Solea solea; prefers shellfish and worms that live on and in the substrate (Ref. 57560).
