Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ? , range 4 - ? cm
Max length : 10.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 9835 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-14; Anal spines : 0; Anal soft rays : 18 - 20; Vertebrae : 31 - 32. Anal organs 10-11; mature males have large 3 to 5 translucent supracaudal gland and smaller infracaudal gland; mature females have small supracaudal gland and much smaller infracaudal patches (Ref. 39633 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Benthopelagic and mesopelagic in slope and oceanic waters, but usually not high-oceanic. Occurs in the upper 200 m at night (Ref. 4066 ). Epipelagic in nearshore areas at 0-856 m (Ref. 58302 ). Occasionally seen during dark nights on slopes that are near very deep water. Attracted by light like moths, becoming disoriented and darting frantically in all directions (Ref. 48635 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 5.6 - 14.4, mean 8.9 °C (based on 788 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00912 (0.00401 - 0.02074), b=3.10 (2.91 - 3.29), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.2   ±0.33 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (K=5.62; tmax=1). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   High . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 237 [43, 782] mg/100g ; Iron = 2.23 [0.63, 6.61] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.3 [15.4, 20.6] % ; Omega3 = 0.97 [0.44, 2.12] g/100g ; Selenium = 42.5 [12.2, 158.9] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 16.7 [2.8, 82.3] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.998 [0.425, 2.034] mg/100g (wet weight); based on nutrient studies.
