Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 10; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 18 - 19. Anal fin margin of females straight or very slightly concave; markedly convex in males (individual rays are stouter and coarser than those of females). Silver, bluish-grey to black-blue dorsally. Large black blotch on the caudal peduncle, with narrow extension on the caudal fin; round black spot behind the head. Dorsal fin grey, adipose dorsal fin orange. All fins grey in color; other specimens all yellowish (except for pectorals). Anal and pelvic fins of a faint orange tinge or grey with a faint yellowish sheen (Ref. 34290).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

In Lake Victoria confined to shallow coastal areas (Ref. 34290, 104654), in water less than 20 m deep (Ref. 12526, 34290). Omnivore, feeding on aquatic plants, surface insects and small fishes, and sometimes on molluscs (Ref. 4903, 12526, 104654). Known to run up rivers and streams in Lake Victoria during rainy season (Ref. 4903). Apparently rare since introduction of Lates (Ref. 4967).

Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01230 (0.00539 - 0.02810), b=3.00 (2.82 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 69278):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (29 of 100) .
