Kurzbeschreibung Morphologie | Morphometrie

This species is characterized by the following: disc approximately 2.2-2.4 times as broad as it is long, the maximum disc width size approximately 550 cm; slender whip-like tail approximately 123% of disc length if intact; no distinct caudal spine or cartilaginous mass at base of tail; some specimens have small hump at the base of the tail on the dorsal surface, while others have a slight depression and groove on the dorsum of the tail immediately posterior to the posterior margin of the dorsal fin; small, knob-like dermal denticles evenly distributed on both the dorsal and ventral surfaces, with ventral surface having slightly larger denticles; dental ligament with small cusped teeth on the lower jaw measuring roughly 22% of total disc length, approximately 6-8 rows, 142-182 files across entire width of the tooth band; total tooth counts of 900-1500 for entire tooth band; top jaw lacks rows of enlarged denticles (Ref. 82755).

Biologie     Fachlexikon (Englisch) (z.B. epibenthic)

Adults are commonly sighted inshore, within a few kilometers of land; found around coral and rocky reefs as well as along productive coastlines with consistent upwelling, tropical island groups, atolls and bays (Ref. 82755). Maximum movement recorded is >500,000 m (Ref. 97317). Known aggregations include sites in Hawai'i, Mozambique, Maldives, Ryukyu Island, Yap Island, Indonesia, eastern and western Australia (Ref. 82755). Gestation period 12-13 months and feeds mainly on planktonic organisms and probably small bony fishes (Ref. 114953).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.3 - 29, mean 27.8 °C (based on 1274 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Widerstandsfähigkeit (Ref. 120179):  sehr niedrig, Verdopplung der Population dauert mehr als 14 Jahre. (tmax>31; tm = 3-8; Fec =1).
Verwundbarkeit (Ref. 59153):  Very high vulnerability (84 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 12.1 [0.9, 74.7] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.445 [0.083, 1.875] mg/100g ; Protein = 19.8 [17.3, 22.3] % ; Omega3 = 0.109 [0.037, 0.340] g/100g ; Selenium = 72.5 [16.1, 301.7] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 8.7 [1.8, 46.6] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.516 [0.125, 1.871] mg/100g (wet weight);
