They can definitely be eaten but most people won't grade them as a quality fish. For local waters, ~15cm would be considered big but they can grow a lot larger. They're also ranked the top few fishes for stealing baits. :lol:

One interesting bits about this bait stealer ...
Places where they roam are also places where you will find groupers.
I do not know how truth this is coz ... both local and overseas boatman always say ...
When you catch a kelong chi ... you find BIG grouper lurking around.
And this fish can be used to target big grouper mama !

Haha i caught a lot @ west coast canal seems dats it is a good place for their populations coz i once caught abt 14 of them allin a size of abt 7 to 16cm long..

And wad peace say is true if there is jarbua Terapon there lies a baramudi near them coz i caught 1 baramudi at a size of 500gm to 1kg... I caught my baramudi by chance coz i was actually reeling the jarbua when i saw a silver color thing rushing for it so i stop a moment and snap it when for it...
Sorry to confuse u coz I'm still new to this sport...
