Scientific name: Oblada melanura
It is a fish that lives near the coast between 5 and 20 meters deep both in rocks and in underwater grasslands. It feeds on small crustaceans, fingerlings, and worms. We often see them as they like to approach boats anchored on sandy bottom.
They always swim in a group and in a very orderly way. To eat they rise to the surface and as they are omnivorous we like to feed them in our boat trips.
