     This predator is found near the coastal line swimming in schools near the surface, but also found at depths up to even 200 m. They are reef-associated animals and feed on fishes and squids. The seasonal changes of water tem­perature are related to the distribution and the seasonal presence of the spe­cies in different locations and depths. They may grow up to about 40 cm to 55 cm of (TL) length.

     They are easily confused to their relative species S. dumerili  due to the many similarities of both species. They are appreciated as food and they are harvested on spring and summertime in the area and thus their Greek common name “mayatiko”, that indicates their presence on month May.

This species is an Atlantic Ocean migrant
