Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Lined Sole or Achirus lineatus is sometimes confused with the Hogchoker, which is distinguished (at over 15 mm total length) by the latter's total lack of pectoral fin rays.Occurs mainly in brackish or hyper-saline lagoons, or on sandy-muddy bottoms of estuaries as well as the littoral zone. It hides itself in the substrate leaving its eyes uncovered to view prey and predators. Can easily disguise itself in the environment. Feeds on worms, crustaceans and small fishes. Juveniles have a brief planktonic life, moving quickly to the benthic stage. Its growth rate is relatively slow.show more
