Bilateria bilaterally symmetrical animals. September to January, spawning is related to the increase in water temperature. Although temperature could be considered as a factor to explain this latitudinal behavior, the magnitude of the estuarine systems along the western Atlantic Coast is also a good argument to explain the estuarine use.
