Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs at midwater to bottom levels in rivers and streams. Individuals are sometimes found in reservoirs but occur more frequently in flowing water. Inhabits rivers during the dry season and migrates to floodplains to spawn during the rainy season. Reproduction takes place relatively late in the high-water season during September and October. Feeds on zooplankton, small crustaceans, chironomids, and other insect larvae. Fish measuring 15-20 cm are marketed fresh and small ones are used to make prahoc (Ref. 12693).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00484 - 0.02068), b=3.02 (2.85 - 3.19), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.45 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 vulnerability (18 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
