Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; benthopelagic, usually 10 - 30 m (Ref. 59043). Temperate; 48°N - 47°N, 13°E - 14°E

Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 40.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 13696); max. reported age: 6 years (Ref. 59043)
Pelagic, usually at depths of 10-30 m. Feeds on zooplankton and small amounts of benthic invertebrates. Spawns in open water close to surface, above depths of 20-40 m (Attersee) or at 2-3 m and close to shore (Mondsee). Spawns for the first time at 4 (Attersee) or 3 years (Mondsee). Spawns in early February - mid March (Attersee), late December - mid January (Mondsee). Individual fishes usually spawn 2-3 seasons. Eggs sink to bottom (Ref. 59043).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00457 (0.00193 - 0.01082), b=3.13 (2.92 - 3.34), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.4 ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Moderate to high vulnerability (48 of 100).
