Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Differs from its congeners in Western Balkans and Adriatic basin by the following characters: 67-75 scales on lateral line; ½13-15/1/5-6 scales in transverse row from dorsal to pelvic fin origins; 24-26 scales around caudal peduncle; mouth terminal; dorsal fin with 8½ branched rays; and anal fin with 8½ branched rays (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in lakes and still water. Adults prey on juvenile fishes. Spawns along lake shores. Threatened due to overfishing (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00813 (0.00386 - 0.01712), b=3.13 (2.96 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (48 of 100) .
