Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 27; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 17-20; Spine anali 3; Raggi anali molli: 17 - 20. There are two lateral lines on the sides, both originating above the upper angle of the gill opening. Sometimes the lower lateral line branches off from the second or third tubular scale of the upper lateral line. The sides are silvery, the back brown; the first dorsal fin is blackish, the second dorsal fin black anteriorly; the buccal cavity is pale, and the branchial cavity pale to dusky.

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201): 9.9 - 19.6, mean 16 °C (based on 46 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01023 (0.00432 - 0.02423), b=3.00 (2.79 - 3.21), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.5 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.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (17 of 100).
