Max length : 67.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 9563)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Greyish to dark brown in color; young with spots on flanks (Ref. 4410).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Subadults are found near the surface over deep water; juveniles occur inshore from surface waters down to at least 50 m (Ref. 9563). Minimum depth from Ref. 58018. Habitat change gradually occur during the growth of the fish, from epipelagic to benthic (mesobenthopelagic), including talassobenthic. Of no commercial value (Ref. 54802).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 8.6 - 14.3, mean 11.7 (based on 81 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00416 - 0.01911), b=3.10 (2.91 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (51 of 100) .
