Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Vertebre: 136 - 138. Shorter air bladder compared to the other two western Atlantic species - G. bathytopos and G. bracheatopos. Differs from the former in lacking the extra several elevated lateral-line pores, having only one or two postorbital pores, only five supraorbital pores, only nine preoperculomandibular pores, and having a pale stomach.

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 8.4 - 14, mean 10.9 °C (based on 29 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00062 (0.00028 - 0.00135), b=3.19 (3.00 - 3.38), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.6 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (38 of 100) .
