Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 123 - 125. Body long, compressed, tapering to a fine point posteriorly; anus situated between pelvic fins widely separated from the urogenital opening situated anterior to anal fin origin. A striated light organ is present on the ventral half of the body and on the sides of the head. Pyloric caeca absent. First pelvic fin ray long, filamentous, reaching to anus when depressed. Color is silvery, the dorsal portions slightly brownish, purplish ventrally; oral cavity darker.

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±0.7 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 (28 of 100) .
