Western Atlantic: Cape Canaveral in northeastern Florida to Keys in USA and the entire Gulf of Mexico. Reported from Jamaica (Ref. 27228).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit seagrass beds and algal mats in very shallow, protected waters. Also found in bays and rivers (Ref. 97140). They prefer fully saline water (Ref. 7251). Salinity ranges from 0.0 to 37.6 (Ref. 97140).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00723 - 0.05508), b=2.84 (2.60 - 3.08), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (K=0.81-2.01; tmax=1).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (17 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
