Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found most abundant near the coast in regions of high riverine outflow. Largest immature male was found to be 27.5 cm WD. No data on size at birth, with smallest specimen 13.2 cm WD of a late male embryo (Ref. 58027). Data for Max.Length of female from Ref.58027. Caught occasionally by bottom trawl and demersal gillnet fisheries operating off Sumatra and Kalimantan. Utilized for its meat and probably its skin (Ref.58048).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01202 (0.00492 - 0.02938), b=3.03 (2.81 - 3.25), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)Family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Very high vulnerability (87 of 100) .
