Northern pilchard

The Northern pilchard lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 10 - 75 m environment.

Northern pilchards and golden-lined sardines occurred in 85% of black marlin stomachs, and comprised 93% of prey items. Sailfish diets were more varied, but the northern pilchard occurred in 57% of the sailfish examined. Only 9 yakkas were found in the 75 billfish stomachs. More
