BiologyOccurs in large rivers with turbid waters (Ref. 27732), streams, canals (Ref. 12693) and lakes (Ref. 56749). Feeds on pelagic fishes in midwater to upper depths (Ref. 12693). Spawns just prior to the rise in water levels and moves into the flooded riparian forests and probably out into the floodplains during high water levels. Young of the year are first seen in July and start to move back to the rivers in October, where they remain common until January (Ref. 12693).
