Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs mainly on the outer continental shelf and upper slope, recorded up to 500 m. Diet mainly based on crustaceans; juveniles feed on amphipods and carid shrimps while adults feed on prawns and bony fishes (Ref. 114953). Lengths of adolescent males unknown, but largest juvenile male was 23.4 cm TL, adult males 31.5-32.1 cm TL, with smallest juvenile 17.0 cm TL (Ref. 75648). Females mature at ca. 31 cm TL; young hatch at 10-11 cm TL (Ref. 114953).

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=0.00562 (0.00271 - 0.01168), b=3.13 (2.95 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.0   ±0.6 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):  Low to moderate vulnerability (32 of 100) .
