Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Presence of pelvic fins which do not or just reach a vertical through the pectoral fin bases; present; origin of dorsal fin above base or anterior part of pectoral fin; without dermal appendages around mouth; gill opening extending downward to at least the middle of pectoral fin base, but not reaching the lower end of pectoral fin base; head depressed; body elongated and tail compressed, with depth about 7-9% TL (Ref. 37311).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 6.8 - 14.1, mean 10 (based on 136 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00129 (0.00055 - 0.00300), b=3.10 (2.89 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (58 of 100) .
