Junior synonym Liparis koefoedi Parr, 1931 is considered valid in Chernova, 2008 (Ref. 79981). However, morphological studies indicate that it is the same as L. fabricii; further review needed (Ref. 120637).

Estimates based on models
Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201
): -0.9 - 4.6, mean 0.7 °C (based on 2340 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01175 (0.00496 - 0.02782), b=3.05 (2.83 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.3 ±0.42 se; based on food items.
Generation time: 2.2 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 1 growth studies.
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming tmax>3).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100).
