A native of the western Pacific region Yellow croaker is often seen inhabiting temperate waters like those of yellow sea and the East China Sea. Usually, the yellow croaker is found eating zooplankton, small fishes and shrimps etc. Mostly you would find this fish in shallow water conditions but they try to avoid brackish conditions as much as they can. An average male, in this case, reaches a height of 42 cm though the average height still remains around 30 cm.
With red lips, gold body and belly and light yellow fins these fish have an almost rectangular shape. Insides of the mouth are white in colour and its gill slits would be black. Their head has two hard bones which give balance to the fish while swimming. These bones are used for medicinal purposes as well. Another habit of theirs which makes them distinct is that they love to jump over water.
It was once an abundant fish in the Chinese and Japanese waters but in the 1970s over usage led to its population coming down. However, they have again become prominent and are consumed salted and fried which is highly prized in those areas. The breeding season of the Yellow croaker is from March to June and they spawn between 30000-70000 eggs at a time.
