A nocturnal fish, it dines on insects, crustacea and sometimes other fishes. Home-ranging, remaining within about a 20-30m stretch of water throughout their life span, this as well as low fecundity makes the fish highly susceptible to overfishing. Generally growing up to 45cm, however can reach 60cm.
