Meditteranean: apparently along the shoreline of Camargue in NW Mediterranean Sea; Mauguio, Prevost, and Thau lagoons in southern France; northern Adriatic Sea.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species is observed in brackish lagoons from the start of spring to the end of summer; leaves the lagoons in autumn to the nearby coastal marine waters. It is presumed to spawn in lagoons in the summer (based on the observation of concentrations of small-sized anchovies together with large densities of eggs in the Thau lagoon, southern France, in July and on the presence of sexually mature individuals, 8-9 cm SL, in the Mauguio and Prevost lagoons, southern France, observed as early as May. In the northern Adriatic Sea, it lives at salinities less than 38 psu and depths less than 50 m (Ref. 76782).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.3 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 vulnerability (10 of 100) .
