    "The anchovies are a family (Engraulidae) of small, common salt-water forage fish. There are about 140 species in 16 genera..." - Wikipedia.

    It depends on which anchovy you're talking about.

    The term anchovy relates to the family level, and there are several genuses under that. If you want the species under the genus stolephorus, try googling or wikipediaing that genus name.
