Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ? , range 17 - ? cm

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14-16; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 8 - 9. This species is distinguished by the following characteristics: greatest body depth 2.7-3.1 in standard length; body scales ctenoid except cycloid scales ventrally on abdomen; rounded caudal fin; pelvic fins usually not reaching the anus, 1.8-2.2 in head length Colour of body reddish brown anteriorly, dark brown posteriorly; caudal fin with 2 white to bluish white bands that converge posteriorly (Ref. 90102 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit clear, shallow waters of outer reef areas, in lagoons, back-reef areas, and on the reef-top. As solitary individuals (Ref. 90102 ), they prefer healthy coral reef in shallow areas, and are therefore greatly affected by reef degradation (Ref. 89707 ). They feed on small fishes (68%) and crustaceans. Because of its small size, the darkfin hind is not of much interest as a food fish (except perhaps to subsistence fisheries), but it does well in an aquarium and may find a market as an aquarium fish. They are caught with hook-and-line, gill nets, and in traps (Ref. 39231 ). Minimum depth reported taken from Ref. 128797.

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 25.2 - 29.3, mean 28.4 °C (based on 3224 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01230 (0.00759 - 0.01994), b=3.04 (2.90 - 3.18), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.0   ±0.69 se; based on food items. Generation time: 0.8 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 1 growth studies. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (14 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Very high . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 84.7 [50.2, 180.6] mg/100g; Iron = 0.894 [0.477, 1.805] mg/100g; Protein = 18.6 [16.7, 20.3] %; Omega3 = 0.174 [0.098, 0.316] g/100g; Selenium = 50.5 [24.1, 100.4] μg/100g; VitaminA = 80.9 [29.1, 256.2] μg/100g; Zinc = 0.998 [0.666, 1.731] mg/100g (wet weight);
