Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Presence of a midlateral row of 4-9 (rarely up to 10) dark blotches along flank. Ventral adipose crest on caudal peduncle absent or less developed than dorsal one. Absence of small spots row directly below midlateral blotches. Dorsal origin above pelvic origin. Interspaces between midlateral blotches without dark pigmentation. Body above midlateral blotches with a few dark spots or unpigmented altogether. 5-8 (rarely up to 10) dorsal blotches. Body depth 16.5-20.0% SL.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in large lowland rivers, usually in deep water (Ref. 59043). Spawning takes place in Danube River and in mouths of some tributaries (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00513 (0.00229 - 0.01150), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assumed Fec < 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
