Find out more about this fish

Looking like super-sardines, "apapa" are large, migratory clupeids, feeding mostly on other fishes. They are most active in twilit hours and focus mainly on surface oriented prey. Typically encountered in large schools. They can present anglers with extended fishing frenzies.
