Etymology: Parablennius: Greek, para = the side of + Greek, blennios = mucus (Ref. 45335).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; demersal. Subtropical
Southwest Pacific: Norfolk Island.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Facultative air-breathing in the genus (Ref. 126274); Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.8 ±0.1 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
Nutrients (Ref. 124155
): Calcium = 701 [283, 2,354] mg/100g ; Iron = 2 [1, 5] mg/100g ; Protein = 17.9 [16.6, 19.2] % ; Omega3 = 0.49 [0.19, 1.21] g/100g ; Selenium = 6.99 [2.30, 20.60] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 140 [28, 683] μg/100g ; Zinc = 2.91 [1.57, 5.16] mg/100g (wet weight);
