Remarks According to local fishers, large amounts of keskas are caught with trolling lures around the full moon. In Palau, south of Peleliu, large amounts are caught from April through June. Judging by the size of the gonads, they say spawning occurs around the full moon (Ref. 2928). Also Ref. 10494, 100789.
