Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Clupeiformes (Herrings) > Clupeidae (Herrings, shads, sardines, menhadens) > Incertae sedis
Etymology: Spratelloides: Old German, sprotte (1611) = a small fish, Clupea sp. + Greek, suffix, oides = similar to (Ref. 45335).

Issue
The species in the genera Spratelloides Bleeker, 1851 and Jenkinsia Jordan & Evermann, 1896 should most probably be assigned to a separated family from Clupeidae and Dussumieriidae (Lavoué, pers. comm., July 2013). See a preliminary analysis in Lavoué et al. (2013: Ref. 93878).

Marine; pelagic-neritic; depth range 0 - 50 m (Ref. 188).   Tropical, preferred ?; 2°N - 12°S, 130°E - 164°E (Ref. 188)

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 6.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 188)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-13; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 11 - 12. Distinguished from other species mainly by the silver band on the flanks which fades anteriorly (at about tips of pectoral fins). Maxilla toothed, triangular pre-maxillae, 2 supra-maxillae, second supra-maxilla asymmetrical (lower part larger than upper); vertical striae on scales not meeting at center; W-shaped pelvic scute.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Usually an inshore schooling species. More data needed. Used as bait in the tuna fishery. Found in coastal waters, sometimes forming large active schools at surface near reefs (Ref 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00513 (0.00289 - 0.00910), b=3.14 (2.98 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.0 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (K=4.30-8.90; tm=0.3).
Prior r = 1.27, 2 SD range = 0.32 - 4.94, log(r) = 0.24, SD log(r) = 0.68, Based on: 1 M, 4 K, 3 Fec records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Low.
