Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Eastern Indian Ocean to South Pacific: Eastern Indian Ocean: off Rottnest Island, southwestern Australia (Ref. 7300). Southwest Pacific: Australia, New Zealand, Kermadec Is. Southeast Pacific: Easter I., Nazca Ridge (Ref. 40817), Desventuradas Is., Juan Fernández Is. ( (Ref. 89357).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs inshore near reefs (Ref. 7300). Benthopelagic and benthic (Ref. 58302). Feeds on plankton and small nekton. Occasionally caught on small hooks when fishing in midwater without sinker and make excellent eating (Ref. 30464). Its abundant gillrakers and stomach contents characterize it as an opportunistic pelagic polyphagic-zooplanktivorous predator (Rojas et al. 1998a, c) (Ref. 89357).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00394 - 0.02313), b=2.97 (2.77 - 3.17), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±0.63 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (34 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
