Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-11; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 9 - 16; Vertebrae: 55 - 58. Body elongate, distinctly compressed laterally, and thin, greatest body depth in front of dorsal fin. Head about 23 - 26% of total length; eye large, but shorter than snout; snout always longer than eye diameter; mouth terminal, lower jaw usually projecting beyond the upper, usually with a distinct symphyseal knob or projecting posteriorly to below the anterior half of the eye. Overall coloration silvery with pink or purple iridescence, dark on back, silvery on sides, white below; often dark on tip of lower jaw, top of head, back and on dorsal and caudal fins. Pelvic fins usually immaculate.

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=0.00661 (0.00383 - 0.01141), b=3.20 (3.05 - 3.35), based on LWR estimates for species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.50 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.51; tmax=10).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
