mitchilli tend to form large, dense aggregations, whereas many other species such as inshore lizardfish Synodus foetens, pinfish Lagodon rhomboides
, and red drum Sciaenops ocellatus tend to be either solitary or found in smaller groups.
xanthurus, Brevoortia tyrannus, and Lagodon rhomboides

(Pisces: Sparidae): variation and functional responses.
Pinfish, Lagodon rhomboides
