Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Gadiformes (Cods) > Bregmacerotidae (Codlets)
Etymology: Bregmaceros: Greek, bregma = front of the head + Greek, keras, -atos = horn (Ref. 45335 ) .

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Marine; brackish; pelagic-oceanic; oceanodromous (Ref. 51243 ); depth range 0 - 2000 m (Ref. 26165 ).   Subtropical; 25°N - 6°N, 62°E - 100°E

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Indian Ocean: confirmed from the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal. Reports from outside this area are most likely misidentifications (A.S. Harold, pers. comm., 18/08/98) and name reported from western Pacific may be a misidentification of B. pseudolanceolatus (Ref. 114229 ).

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ?   range ? - ? cm
Max length : 9.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 4496 ); common length : 7.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 2872 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 57-66; Anal spines : 0; Anal soft rays : 58 - 69; Vertebrae : 52 - 58. Body is elongate, brownish and with speckling above and silvery below. The cheek and lower head also silver. Single occipital ray long and delicate, extending to near the middle of the second dorsal fin (Ref. 46075 ). Pelvic fins are jugular.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

If taxonomy is correct, both onshore in brackish water and oceanic. According to larval survey, occurrence in the tropics is wide (Ref. 9902 , 45075 ). Feed on planktonic crustaceans. Also caught with bagnets (Ref. 2872 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 5.6 - 13.1, mean 8.8 (based on 755 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00380 (0.00158 - 0.00917), b=3.18 (2.97 - 3.39), 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. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Assuming tm=1). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) . Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   High .
