Opsanus tau can detect low-frequency sound with its inner-ear organs and lateral line, both of which are sensitive to particle motion between 50 and 300 Hz (Fay and Edds-Walton, 1997; Maruska and Mensinger, 2015) and between 80 and 300 Hz (Radford and Mensinger, 2014), respectively.
beta en el SLA que consume juveniles y que puede concordar con lo reportado por Palmer, Deffenbaugh y Mensinger (2005), quienes mencionan que el caracter depredador de Opsanus tau, especie emparentada con Opsanus beta, se ve favorecido por la rapida respuesta en movilidad que muestra en los lugares que habita, atacando a diversas especies que comparten el habitat con esta especie.
