Scats favour brackish waters. They can be commonly found in river mouths and shorelines, feeding along seawalls and structures. They can be found dwelling under Kelongs and floating fish farms as well. They will eat almost anything; prawns, barnacles, algae, bread, etc. They are excellent fighter for their size and dashes for structures nearby upon hookup.
