Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected using gill nets, trawl nets, seining and 'lampara' engine. Stomach contents include remains of cephalopods, Sardina pilchardus or Sardinella aurita, a young Sphyraena sphyraena, and fluid materials. Some were infected in the stomach and gonads by the anisakid nematode Anisakis sp. (Ref. 82428).

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=0.00708 (0.00314 - 0.01595), b=2.91 (2.74 - 3.08), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.3   ±0.8 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):  High vulnerability (55 of 100) .
