Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A species that creates elaborate burrows in mud. Its burrows are tunnel-shaped, vertical, and extend to depths of 50-90 cm into the substrate; 4-9 other smaller tunnels radiate from the primary tunnel and connect to the outside. Feeds on a variety of food including bivalves, crustaceans, cephalopods, and small fishes (Ref. 45323). At low tide, this fish is a facultative breather (Ref. 92840).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00912 (0.00360 - 0.02311), b=2.98 (2.76 - 3.20), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (48 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
