Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 13 - 14; Dorsal soft rays (total): 20-22; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 22 - 24; Vertebrae: 39 - 40. Swim bladder with two posterior extensions. Body is pale brown to dull brown above, lighter below; a faint mid-lateral stripe usually present; dorsal fins dusky terminally with five or six rows of dusky spots on second dorsal fin membranes, other fins hyaline.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in tidal flats in the estuary zone near large rivers. Oviparous (Ref. 205). Fishery is declining possibly due to habitat alteration by reclamation and pollution. The flesh is firm and well accepted in Japan (Ref. 6205).

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=0.00407 (0.00182 - 0.00910), b=3.14 (2.94 - 3.34), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.44 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
