Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 5. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: pectoral-fin rays 16-18 (mode 17) with middle rays branched in young and adults; pored lateral-line scales 2-8 (mode 3) with last pored scale situated from below second to fifth dorsal-fin spine base; longitudinal scale series about 50 rows; gill rakers 17-21 (mode 19); presence of palatine teeth; distinct nuchal and parietal spines; suborbital spines 3-5 (mode 5); the nape and anterior part of body moderately arched throughout life; relatively short post-nuchal-spine length, 3.2-9.5% (mean 5.7%) of SL; relatively long caudal-fin length, 23.4-30.7% (mean 26.7%) of SL; black spots on posterior half of caudal peduncle 5-37 (mode 8); body of preserved specimens with 4 distinct saddles (Ref. 92845).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 10.3 - 18.8, mean 13.1 (based on 154 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01230 (0.00590 - 0.02567), b=3.02 (2.85 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
