Anadromous, pelagic at 0-50 m, but deeper in winter, forming dense shoals during spawning run and making considerable migrations; juveniles in mouths of rivers and bays. Feeds on fishes (herring, sand eels, smelt), also crustaceans; young at sea on crustaceans (harpacticoids, calanids, amphipods); in freshwater, adults do not feed. Summer population enters rivers early July to late August, spawning from mid-August; autumn population enters rivers from mid-August, spawning from mid-September at 2-8 years old (usually 3-4); adults die after spawning shoals in estuarine areas and often remaining near the shore for several months and at sea for 3-5 years. Fecundity varies greatly with body-size, 2000 to 5000 eggs. Development of eggs also varies greatly with water temperature. Fertilization to hach-out to absorption of yolk requires 48 days at 10º C.
