Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 22 - 25. Snout short, about 1/2 eye diameter; maxilla shorter than in most other Anchoa species, tip pointed, not reaching beyond hind margin of pre-operculum; gill cover canals of walkeri-type. Pectoral fins large, reaching about pelvic fin origin; anal fin fairly long, its origin below or just before midpoint of dorsal fin base. A silver stripe along flank, less than eye diameter.

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Presumably schooling along beaches and down to 22 m. A single specimen was recorded from Coqueiros at the mouth of the Paraguaçu River, thus able to tolerate lowered salinities. More data needed.

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 22.5 - 28.2, mean 27.3 °C (based on 81 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00513 (0.00233 - 0.01130), b=3.14 (2.97 - 3.31), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
