Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Differs from other species of shemayas and Turkey by the combination of the following characters: origin of anal fin about 1½ -2½ scales behind dorsal-fin base; anal fin with 14-16½ branched rays; gill rakers 25-31; length of gill raker at angle between upper and lower limbs of first gill arch 60-90% of opposite inner gill filament; lateral line scales 56-66+4; ventral keel exposed for 5-8 scales in front of anus; head length 22-24% SL; predorsal length 53-57% SL; caudal peduncle depth 1.8-2.4 times in its length; eye diameter 5.4-7.3% SL, 1.0-1.3 times in interorbital distance; interorbital distance 6.0-7.3% SL; no faint, dark midlateral stripe; and numerous small tubercles in nuptial males (Ref. 75107).

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 (0.00372 - 0.01775), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming Fec < 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (35 of 100) .
