All species of bream have a rounded and compressed body, with silvery-gray color livery and a little black spot before the tail, or on the caudal peduncle.

Distribution and habitat

These fish are widespread in the Mediterranean and eastern Atlantic, where they live in rocky or mixed waters, from coastal waters to a depth of 100 meters. Although the white bream, and in particular the D. sargus popular prey of underwater hunters, mostly take refuge in burrows placed at a certain depth, where environmental conditions permit tranquility, in search of food (the main resource are the hedgehogs are shredded with a suitable dental apparatus) attend the next band to the shoreline, approaching considerably the surface. This is evidenced by the predominant presence of remains of bream ascertained feeding the osprey (Pandion haliaetus), which captures artigliandoli fish on the fly without diving. Sarago Diplodus Sargus sparidae sparidi sparide Mar Mediterraneo
