Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 0; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 0; Raggi anali molli: 13 - 16; Vertebre: 81 - 85. In adults, head depth 21.3-23.2% of lower jaw length; postorbital region 5.0-6.7% SL or 25.5-30% HL (1/3 of HL). Rear edge of gill cover overlaps with the vertical of the middle of the 4th vertebrae. Pectoral fins begin at the vertical of the end of the 4th to beginning of 5th vertebrae. Postadipose distance represents 4.6-5.9% SL (Ref. 31260).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Inhabits the epimesopelagic layer of the southern ocean circumglobally. Only fry and juveniles were observed in subtropical waters; large adults encountered in sub-Antarctic and Antarctic waters. Capable of shedding teeth and reducing gastrointestinal tract prior to spawning. Monocyclic, that is, they die after the first spawning (a reproductive strategy that evolved as a result of the large distance between feeding and spawning areas). Main food is Notolepis coatsi which are 15-38 cm in length and weighs to 57-90 g (Ref. 31260).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): -0.5 - 1.5, mean 0.7 °C (based on 292 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.5   ±0.80 se; based on food items.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 4.5 - 14 anni (Assuming tmax>10).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (45 of 100) .
