Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults occur near surface waters of lagoon and seaward reefs, in surge zones along sandy beaches (Ref. 48635, 90102). They always move in schools at the edge of the surf near the reef, usually in pairs or small groups in surface waters (Ref. 48635). They feed on small fishes (Ref. 9710). They are occasionally taken by trolling and line fishing.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01259 (0.00539 - 0.02941), b=2.97 (2.77 - 3.17), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.57 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Medium.
