Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits pristine sections of clear, flowing, rocky streams strewn with logs and other woody debris. Life history and general biology are similar to that of the Murray cod; however, it has a slightly slower growth rate. Spawns in spring when water temperatures exceed 16°C (Ref. 44894).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Very Low, minimum population doubling time more than 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High to very high vulnerability (66 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
