Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

A broad, dark longitudinal stripe in adults; two black longitudinal stripes with a bright orange intermediate area in juveniles (Ref. 27732 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Obligate air-breathing (Ref. 126274 ); Occurs in lowland river and swamp (Ref. 57235 ). Usually associated with deep water bodies (Ref. 27732 ). Found in large streams and canals (Ref. 4833 ), with standing or slowly flowing water (Ref. 12693 ). Feeds mainly on fish but also takes some crustaceans. Spawns in small streams with dense vegetation (Ref. 56749 ). Utilized as a food fish (Ref. 4931 ). Economic important mainly from capture fisheries (Ref. 57235 ).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00851 (0.00381 - 0.01901), b=2.98 (2.80 - 3.16), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.9   ±0.55 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Assuming tmax>10). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Very high vulnerability (90 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Unknown . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 36.3 [17.7, 86.6] mg/100g; Iron = 0.677 [0.436, 1.136] mg/100g; Protein = 18 [17, 19] %; Omega3 = 0.191 [0.075, 0.482] g/100g; Selenium = 51.1 [19.0, 130.0] μg/100g; VitaminA = 51 [18, 141] μg/100g; Zinc = 1.01 [0.69, 1.57] mg/100g (wet weight); based on nutrient studies.
