Etymology: Thryssa: Greek, thrissa, -es = shad (Ref. 45335). More on author: Günther.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; pelagic-neritic. Tropical; 39°N - 21°N, 111°E - 129°E (Ref. 189)
Western Pacific: China to Korea.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 10.7 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 189)
soft rays: 25 - 31. Belly with 16 to 18 + 9 or 10 = 25 to 28 keeled scutes from isthmus to anus. Maxilla short, not reaching back beyond hind border of pre-operculum; first supra-maxilla long, at least half length of second. Lower gill rakers with serrae not distinctly clumped.
Presumably marine, pelagic and schooling, but more data needed based on correct identifications.

= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00490 (0.00250 - 0.00959), b=3.10 (2.93 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.3 ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
