Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-13; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 12 - 14; Vertebrae: 62 - 65. Distinguished by the pale, almost colorless pelvic and pectoral fins and the smaller number of gill rakers on the lower portion of the first gill arch (Ref. 27547). Dorsal rather high and falcate; pelvic fins with axillary process (Ref. 27547). Generally brownish to dark green on back; silvery on lower sides and belly; anal, pelvic and pectoral fins pale; caudal and dorsal fins dusky (Ref. 27547).

North America: Alaska. May occur in Chukotsk and Kamchatka regions of Siberia.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found near river mouths and brackish lagoons (Ref. 5723). Makes extensive migrations related to spawning (Ref. 27547). Feeds on invertebrates and cottids (Ref. 27547). Apparently does not feed during its spawning runs (Ref. 27547).

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=0.00550 (0.00265 - 0.01142), b=3.20 (3.03 - 3.37), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.59 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):  Moderate to high vulnerability (45 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
