Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?, range 2 - ? cm
Max length : 2.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 5162); 3.8 cm SL (female); max. reported age: 1 years (Ref. 5162)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-15; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 18 - 20

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Oceanic, precise depth range dependent upon developmental stage, latitude, season (Ref. 4769). Generally horizontally oriented (Ref. 4769). Feeds on small zooplankton, mostly copepods (Ref. 5162). Sexually dimorphic with large females and small males (Ref. 9503). Sex ratio vary with size groups but is about 1:1 around spawning. Length-frequency histograms are bimodal; has a two-year life cycle (Ref. 82363).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00363 (0.00142 - 0.00928), b=3.07 (2.84 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.18 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tm=2; Fec=200).
Prior r = 0.38, 2 SD range = 0.1 - 1.49, log(r) = -0.97, SD log(r) = 0.69, Based on: 1 tgen, 1 tmax, 4 Fec records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
