Length has also been seen as unreliable for estimating the age for other sparids
, including red porgy (Pagrus pagrus; Hood and Johnson, 2000), black bream (Acanthopagrus butcheri; Sarre and Potter, 2000), pinfish (Lagodon rhomboids; Nelson, 2002), and littlehead porgy (Calamus proridens; Tyler-Jedlund and Torres, 2015).

Lack of consistency between the trophic interrelationships of five sparid
species in the two adjacent central Mediterranean coastal lagoons.
Both spottails and the other common omnivorous sparid
in our area, Lagodon rhomboides, feed preferentially on green and red algae and avoid browns (Hay 1986, Hay et al.

Abstract--The carpenter seabream (Argyrozona argyrozona) is an endemic South African sparid
that comprises an important part of the handline fishery.
However, this sparid
attains maturity later in the estuary than in those nearby coastal marine waters.
