mojarra

(mōhär`ə), common name for a member of the family Gerreidae, small tropical food fishes. The many American species are found chiefly off the S Atlantic coast but also along the Pacific coast. Mojarras are rarely over a foot (30 cm) in length and are silvery in color. The fins can be retracted into specialized grooves located under the anal and dorsal fins. They feed on plant life, extending their jaws in order to engulf their food. Mojarras are classified in the phylum ChordataChordata
, phylum of animals having a notochord, or dorsal stiffening rod, as the chief internal skeletal support at some stage of their development. Most chordates are vertebrates (animals with backbones), but the phylum also includes some small marine invertebrate animals.
