Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8. Interorbital space flat. Bases of dorsal and anal fins without scales, their last soft rays extended into short filaments. Pectoral fins long, reaching level of anus. Scale rows on back parallel to lateral line. Overall color rosy red; the top of the head with longitudinal vermiculated lines and spots of brownish yellow; the dorsal fin with wavy yellow lines.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Sharptooth snappers are found in tropical and sub-tropical deep waters. They are found in schools and live in areas of hard, rocky and uneven sea floor (Ref. 27354). They feed on benthic invertebrates and fishes.

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Studies in South China Sea (Ref. 28116) and Hawaii (Ref. 28117) suggest that this species is a serial spawner (Ref. 28115).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01202 (0.00696 - 0.02076), b=2.95 (2.81 - 3.09), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.2   ±0.61 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.25; tmax=11; Fec=760,000).
Prior r = 0.59, 2 SD range = 0.36 - 0.98, log(r) = -0.53, SD log(r) = 0.25, Based on: 1 M, 1 K, 1 tmax, 4 Fec records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (39 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
