Life History Data on Notacanthus chemnitzii
Snubnosed spiny eel
Family: Notacanthidae                           Deep-sea spiny eels
Max. length (Lmax): = cm
L infinity (Linf): =    s.e. - cm
L maturity (Lm):     s.e. - cm
Estimated from Linf.         
L max. yield (Lopt):    s.e. - cm
Estimated from Linf.
K: /year
Estimate K from Linf, Lm and tm:
Lm =    cm
tm = years
Estimate K from Linf and tmax:
tmax = years
Enter Linf and K:
Linf =    cm
K = /year

Growth & mortality data

Max. age & size data
to: years       Estimated from Linf and K.
Natural mortality (M):   s.e. - /year
Life span (approx.):     s.e. -    years      Estimated from Linf., K and to.        Max. age & size data
Generation time:     s.e. -    years       Estimated from Lopt, Linf., K and to.
Age at first maturity (tm):     s.e. -    years       Estimated from Lm, Linf., K and to.
Length-weight: cm => (wet weight)
W = * L ^

Length-weight data
Nitrogen & protein:
Weight (g) => whole-body nitrogen (N) (g)
=> whole-body crude protein (g)
Fecundity: [no value (min.)-no value (max.)]       Estimated as geometric mean.          Spawning
Relative Yield per Recruit (Y'/R): Estimate Y'/R from M/K, Lc/Linf and E.
Lc = cm    E =   /year
Emsy /year    Eopt /year
Fmsy /year    Fopt /year
Exploitation: Z=
Estimate Z, F, E from Lc, Lmean, Linf, K, M
Lc = cm
Lmean = cm
Resilience / productivity:
Vulnerable to extinction if decline in biomass or numbers exceeds threshold over the longer of 10 years or 3 generations.
Intrinsic rate of increase (rm): /year Lr = cm   
Estimated from Fmsy at Lc = length of recruitment (Lr).
Main food: mainly animals (troph. 2.8 and up)
Trophic level: 3.5     +/- s.e. 0.37          Estimated from food data.           Food
Food consumption (Q/B): times the body weight per year Enter Winf, temperature, aspect ratio (A), and food type to estimate Q/B
Winf = g      Temp. = °C
A =     
Detrivore Herbivore Omnivore Carnivore
