For instance, some carangids can consume large numbers of demersal juveniles that use shallow nurseries, but these predators may feed only sporadically in shallow waters, in a manner similar to their transient feeding on coral reefs (Hixon & Carr, 1997).

Dentition has been used as an important diagnostic character of carangid genera, but comparison of the dentition of a large number of carangid species reveals an almost complete continuum of dentition types that in some cases does not agree with traditional generic assignments.
