Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 3; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 25-27; Radios blandos anales: 24 - 25. Body grey brown to olivaceous dorsally with very small pale spots, becoming whitish ventrally with brownish yellow spots many of which anastomose into a reticulum; 3 large oval white spots along the back and a small one dorsally on caudal peduncle; a broad white streak often on side of body posterior to upper end of gill opening. An oblique groove before the eye. Behind gill opening are large osseous scales. Greatest body depth 2-2.5 SL. First dorsal spine 1.6-1.9 HL; 3rd dorsal spine about 1/3 length of first spine. Front of soft dorsal and anal fins not elevated; caudal fin double emarginate, lobes longer with growth. Depressed caudal peduncle, width greater than least depth, very slender and tapering, much longer than deep (Ref. 11441).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Inhabits mud and silt sand bottoms (Ref. 11441, 48637). Adults on deep coastal slopes and usually seen swimming high above the bottom, sometimes found in estuaries. Juveniles in sheltered coastal bays and estuaries with outcrops of rubble or debris on open substrates (Ref. 48637).

Life cycle and mating behavior Madurez | Reproducción | Puesta | Huevos | Fecundidad | Larva

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 18.5 - 28.1, mean 25 (based on 856 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02630 (0.01249 - 0.05539), b=2.93 (2.75 - 3.11), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Medio, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo de 1.4-4.4 años (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (44 of 100) .
