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

Atlantic, Indian and Pacific: in tropical and subtropical waters. Absent in the Mediterranean and in the eastern tropical Pacific. Widespread in the Eastern Central Atlantic but recorded mainly between 5°N and south of the equator. South China Sea (Ref.74511).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Mesopelagic at ca. 100-1000 m (Ref. 58302). Larvae (<3 cm SL) and small juveniles are frequently caught in the upper 50 or 100 m. Most adults are usually taken from depths exceeding 400 m but often between 100-400 m (Ref. 4763). Feeds on other midwater fishes. Synchronous hermaphrodites (Ref. 4478).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00417 (0.00158 - 0.01100), b=3.12 (2.89 - 3.35), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.3   ±0.60 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming tmax>3).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
