Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits coastal lagoons and brackish bays at mouth of freshwater streams (Ref. 2850). IS subjected to wide variation in salinity (1-28 ppt.) and temperature (9-25°C) both within and among habitat types. The substrate and vegetation can also differ among lagoon, creek and marsh habitats (Ref. 26474). Feeds mainly on crustaceans, dipteran larvae, gastropods, and invertebrate eggs (Ref. 26474). Oviparous (Ref. 56079). Males construct nesting burrows (Ref. 56079).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous (Ref. 56079). Eggs are brooded in nesting burrows constructed by males (Ref. 56079).

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=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tmax=1).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
