Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Mid-water plankton feeders which feed almost exclusively on copepods. Form small feeding aggregations (10-20 fishes) in calm inshore waters, but in deeper water offshore or in areas subject to strong currents, aggregations of up to 500 individuals may occur (Ref. 26966). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 14.8 - 23.3, mean 18.5 °C (based on 112 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01549 (0.00850 - 0.02823), b=2.98 (2.83 - 3.13), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.0 se; based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (31 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 41.1 [21.3, 86.5] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.536 [0.318, 1.094] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.3 [17.2, 19.3] % ; Omega3 = 0.672 [0.355, 1.290] g/100g ; Selenium = 9.54 [4.42, 21.01] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 18.7 [5.2, 76.4] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.69 [0.44, 1.06] mg/100g (wet weight);
