Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

South Pacific Ocean: Foundation Seamounts on the eastern edge of the Pacific Plate, just west of the East Pacific Ridge. This species is most likely to be more widespread in the central and eastern South Pacific Ocean than what is presently known.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 69.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 76767)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 19 - 20; Dorsal soft rays (total): 40-44; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 32 - 37; Vertebrae: 24 - 25. This species is distinguished from all other latrids by the following characters: total count of dorsal fin elements (spines plus soft rays) 60-64 (cf. 46-59); precaudal vertebrae 18 (cf. 14-16, or 21-22); dorsal fin spines 19-20, dorsal soft rays 40-44; anal soft rays 32-37; pectoral fin rays 17-19, with 8-9 branched rays; tubed lateral line scales 115-129, total 112-124 on body plus 3-8 extending across caudal fin base; scale rows in upper transverse series 14-17, in lower transverse series 26-30; total gill rakers on first arch 18-22; vertebrae 18+24-25 = 42-43 (Ref. 76767).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Caught by baited dropline at 100-300 m depth on the tops and sides of the Foundation Seamounts on the eastern edge of the Pacific Plate, just west of the East Pacific Ridge. Considerable numbers (thousands, weighing tens of tonnes) have been taken from the general area, however, accurate and reliable location data are scarce and are available only from its type locality (Ref. 76767).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7812   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01202 (0.00475 - 0.03046), b=3.04 (2.82 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.2 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (53 of 100) .
