Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 0; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 38-48; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 4. Variable green to brown or grey, depending on habitat (Ref. 48635).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Occur in protected coastal shallows over or among algae, seagrasses (Ref. 41878), or floating weeds (Ref. 1602). Juveniles occasionally found near the surface (Ref. 4281). Ovoviviparous (Ref. 205). The males carry the eggs in a brood pouch which is found under the tail (Ref. 205). Used in Chinese medicine to extract Hailong, one of the important drugs (Ref. 12206). Has been reared in captivity (Ref. 35416).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.9 - 29.3, mean 28.4 °C (based on 3423 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00036 (0.00016 - 0.00083), b=3.18 (2.99 - 3.37), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.6 se; based on diet studies.
Generation time: 1.3 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 2 growth studies.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Medio, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 1.4 - 4.4 anni (Assuming annual Fec<1000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 107 [60, 197] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.784 [0.504, 1.251] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.9 [17.7, 20.1] % ; Omega3 = 0.121 [0.073, 0.212] g/100g ; Selenium = 44.8 [23.3, 91.1] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 38.8 [13.5, 109.4] μg/100g ; Zinc = 1.35 [0.94, 1.92] mg/100g (wet weight);
