Kurzbeschreibung Morphologie | Morphometrie

4 chin barbels and a longitudinal groove in a depression on midline of head.

Biologie     Fachlexikon (Englisch) (z.B. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit continental waters and enter estuaries. Found in turbid waters over muddy bottoms. Males incubate eggs in the mouth (Ref. 205). Commonly captured from catwalks, bridges and piers, particularly in passes and inland waterways. Edible, but generally not consumed (Ref. 7251).

Life cycle and mating behavior Geschlechtsreife | Fortpflanzung | Ablaichen | Eier | Fecundity | Larven
