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

Oceania: Has a range including 3 drainage divisions from Queensland to Victoria. In the north it extends from the Mary River southwards, to the Hunter River. It also occurs throughout the Murray-Darling division, except at the highest altitudes (Ref. 2906).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Normally lives around littoral vegetation and ca be found in dams, lakes and canals as well as streams (Ref. 2906, 44894). Inhabits slow-flowing rivers or in still water like billabongs (Ref. 44894). It congregates in large schools below dams and weirs (Ref. 2906). Feeds on insects, larvae, microcrustaceans and some plant material. Spawning occurs from late spring to summer when water temperatures rise above 22°C. The male guards and fans the eggs until hatching about 2 days later. Young reach sexual maturity by the end of their first year (Ref. 44894).

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=0.00933 (0.00293 - 0.02977), b=3.03 (2.78 - 3.28), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.1 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
