Etymology: Parapristipoma: Greek, para = the side of + Greek, pristis = saw + Greek, poma = operculum (Ref. 45335).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; benthopelagic; oceanodromous. Subtropical; 39°N - 15°N, 105°E - 140°E
Indo-West Pacific: southern Japan, East China Sea and Taiwan.
Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm 18.0, range 16 - 20 cm
Max length : 40.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 559); max. published weight: 1.1 kg (Ref. 40637)
Cultured and released for fishery in Japan. The species prefers relative warm water, high salinity, and rocky shores. The species does seasonal offshore-inshore migrations in limited areas (Ref. 34104).
Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). A couple ascends quickly to the surface and spawns (Ref. 34104).
