Espinas dorsales (total): 4 - 7; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 10-13; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 18 - 19; Vértebra: 23 - 24. Branchiostegal rays: 4 (Ref. 36710).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. 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).
Nivel trófico (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.
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (K=0.55-1.18; tmax=2).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
