Info

Raitt, 1934

The foto was taken by Erling Svensen, Norway.

This species is usually territorial and burrowing.

Feed on zooplankton and phytoplankton

High activity in periods with strong tidal currents; then the sand-eels leave their bottom hides and form large shools.
When the light intensity is low, at night and during wintertime they bury in the bottom.
