Husbandry

Girard, 1854

Biology:
Anchovies are small baitfish that supply supper for many other animals and are an important part of the open ocean food web.
They feed on microscopic morsels and then make a meal for passing fishes, marine mammals and seabirds.

Distribution:
Northeast Pacific: northern Vancouver Island south to Cape San Lucas, Baja California, Mexico. Two subspecies recognized: Engraulis mordax mordax from British Columbia to Baja California and Engraulis mordax nanus in Bays of California.
