Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in rivers and lakes. Inhabits lower and middle sections of rivers in slower moving waters. Prefers a soft substrate of sand, mud and small stones (Ref. 7335).

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

Generally spawns in open pits or depressions in the sand. Cleans an area about 12-18 inches in diameter and patrols an area about 1-2 cubic meters, diligently warding off intruders.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01514 (0.00703 - 0.03260), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.45 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tm<1; Fec=400).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
