A pelagic oceanic species that lives in waters with a temperature of at least 24 degrees, therefore, the species is characterized by migration from south to north and back. Not found on mainland coasts and islands. Usually found at a depth of up to 40 m. It can form flocks of up to 10 individuals. Adult fish prefer solitary swimming. It feeds on tuna, rays, crustaceans and squid.
