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

Eastern Indian Ocean: southern Australia, from Western Australia to New South Wales. The species is considered to be endemic to Australia, although a single specimen has been reported from New Zealand (Ref. 30464).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found on the continental shelf and slope, while juveniles school seasonally in inshore waters (Ref. 9563). Juvenile ocean jackets have been caught in seagrass, over bare sand and on rocky reefs (Ref. 6390). Adults however, tend to be absent from seagrass areas (Ref. 6390). Are carnivorous, feeding mainly on salps. Other food items in the diet include gastropod mollusks, crustaceans and fish (Ref. 30465). Sold as fresh trunks (Ref. 6390).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01148 (0.00653 - 0.02018), b=2.83 (2.67 - 2.99), based on LWR estimates for species & (Sub)Family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.60 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tm=2-4; tmax=9; Fec=700,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (51 of 100) .
