The Goinar is seen in the Indo Pacific region. It can be found in regions starting from the Persian Gulf to India and from the east to Papua New Guinea. Off late, this variety has been introduced in the Mediterranean region as well. The length of the Goinar at maturity is around 8.6 metre. However, it is believed that its average length would remain around 6-6.5 cm.
The weight range if the Goinar remains between 3.7 to 13.5 grams. This species is usually found in the muddy bottoms of seas ranging at a depth of around 85 metres. You can also look for them at the mouth of estuaries.
During the day time, the Goinar is found burrowing inside the mud hence the need to stay deep. At this time you only see its antennular flagella are sticking out. These antennas then help the Goinar to respirate freely. For mating, it uses its olfactory and tactile cues and indirectly transfers its sperm to the female species. Some fisheries tend to nurture the Goinar though their number is definitely less than for other species.
