Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from congeners in Caspian and Black Sea basins by the following characters: origin of anal fin below branched dorsal rays 4-5; lateral line with 38-43 + 3 scales; anal fin with 11-16½ branched rays; 16-25 gill rakers; ventral keel exposed or partly or completely scales; body deep, depth 25-32% SL, markedly laterally compressed; caudal peduncle depth 1.7-2.1 times in its length (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits water bodies with slow to fast current, preferring places with slow current. Abundant in middle and lower parts of large rivers and their tributaries, reservoirs and swampy creeks; also in brackish water at river mouths, in estuaries and coastal lakes. Frequently schools in upper water layers. Feeds on plankton, insect larvae, and seeds. Spawns in shallow water at depth of 0.1-0.5 m. Lays sticky eggs, 1.4 mm in diameter, on submerged plants, rarely on pebbles (Ref. 59043).

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

Spawns 1-2 times during its life. Deposits sticky eggs, 1.4 mm in diameter, on submerged plants, rarely on pebbles (Ref. 59043).

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=0.00891 (0.00387 - 0.02054), b=3.03 (2.85 - 3.21), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tm=3; Assuming Fec < 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (15 of 100) .
