Etymology: Sebastes: Greek, sebastes = august, venerable (Ref. 45335);  mystinus: Name from the Latinized form of the Greek word μυ;stησ, mwhich means initiated one or mystic, c, interpreted by some as 'priest'; 19th century fishermen of Monterey, CA called the fish 'pêche prêtre' because of its dark coloration and its light band between the head bars that resembles a clerical collar (Ref. 103574).  More on authors: Jordan & Gilbert.

Biologie     Verklarende woordenlijst (b.v. epibenthic)

May be found near the surface or off the bottom, generally over shallow reefs, but also around kelp and over deep reefs (Ref. 2850). Juveniles are pelagic (Ref. 36715). Form schools, sometimes with other rockfishes (Ref. 2850). Feed mainly on krill (Ref. 2850), but also on tunicates, jellyfishes and fishes (Ref. 6885). Viviparous, with planktonic larvae (Ref. 36715). Young are important prey for fishes and other marine vertebrates (Ref. 2850).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 0.8 - 7.9, mean 4.2 °C (based on 65 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00479 - 0.02087), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.1 se; based on diet studies.
Weerstandsvermogen (Ref. 120179):  laag, minimale populatieverdubbelingstijd 4,5-14 jaar (K=0.17 (?); tm=3-5; tmax=44).
Kwetsbaarheid (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (56 of 100) .
