Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished by the following characters: precaudal vertebrae 16-17; first gill arch with long gill rakers 18-21, broad, bladed; HL:HD 1.71-1.79; most head spines are strong: on ethmoidal, prefrontal, interorbital, supraorbital, sphenotic, supratemporal, inner and outer posttemporal, inner preopercular rim, lacrimal with ridge, and weak on outer preopercular rim, absent on 5th infraorbital; opercular spine is sharp, extruding; maxilla with single row of scales along upper margin in front of supramaxilla; the large opercular flap with ridges; lower lateral line pores until beginning of anal fin 16; narrow dentition patch on vomer with few or 1-2 (rarely 3) rows of teeth; palatines with moderately broad dentition patch (3-6 rows of teeth); otolith with single colliculum but indentation at ventral margin and rarely separate colliculi; OL:OH = 1.45-1.64; OL:TCL = 1.87-2.52 (Ref. 125143).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201): 3.3 - 4.9, mean 4.3 °C (based on 37 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00110 (0.00041 - 0.00296), b=3.08 (2.85 - 3.31), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.6 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming tmax>3).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100).
