Spine dorsali (totale): 4 - 7; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 10-13; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 18 - 19; Vertebre: 23 - 24. Branchiostegal rays: 4 (Ref. 36710).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Found in a wide range of habitats, from near surface to near bottom and sometimes in huge schools (Ref. 2850). May range into coastal waters (Ref. 36711). Oviparous, with planktonic eggs and larvae (Ref. 36711). Seems to be sympatric with Macroramphosus scolopax (Linnaeus, 1758) all around the world (Ref. 89357).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 11.8 - 26.8, mean 19.7 °C (based on 1175 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7502   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01479 (0.00597 - 0.03664), b=2.93 (2.72 - 3.14), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Generation time: 2.0 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 2 growth studies.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (K=0.55-1.18; tmax=2).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
