Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 21-24; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 17 - 19; Vertebrae: 24. This species is a member of the Caranx hippos complex characterized by the following: segmented dorsal-fin rays 21-23 (exceptional 24); segmented anal-fin rays 17-19, usually 18; posttemporal bones hyperossified in specimens larger than 20 cm FL; cleithrum, first pterygiophore of dorsal and anal fins, and neural spines of vertebrae relatively slender and never hyperossified; for individuals > 20 cm FL, heights of longest dorsal- and anal-fin rays both 0.7-1.3 in HL; in adults, anal-fin lobe white anteriorly and remainder of fin gray to brown (Ref. 58464).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [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   ±0.7 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 vulnerability (41 of 100) .
