Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 65-78; Anal soft rays: 49 - 63. Anterior nostril on blind side not enlarged, anterior nostril on eyed side with a backward-pointing tube, reaching to vertical through front margin of lower eye.

Eastern Atlantic: Iceland and Scotland southward, also North Sea, Kattegat and Baltic. Mediterranean Sea: including Adriatic, Sea of Marmara, Bosporus.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Demersal on sandy bottoms of continental shelf and slope. Feeds on a wide range of bottom-living organisms, mainly crustaceans (copepods, amphipods, cumaceans), bivalve mollusks, and polychaetes (Ref. 3397).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00672 - 0.01183), b=3.01 (2.93 - 3.09), based on LWR estimates for this species (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.42 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.54-0.61; tm=3; tmax=13).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
