Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found over soft bottoms of coastal waters. Juveniles are commonly found in estuarine regions, mangroves, tidal streams and rivers far from the coast. Adults occur in deeper waters. Forms schools (Ref. 37955). Omnivore (Ref. 37955), feeds on vegetable matter, micro-invertebrates and detritus (Ref. 36880).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01230 (0.00739 - 0.02049), b=3.01 (2.87 - 3.15), based on LWR estimates for species & (Sub)Family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 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 vulnerability (11 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Medium.
