Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Intertidal (Ref. 31184 ), found on the wave-battered rocky shores (Ref. 5298 ). May remain out of water under rocks and seaweeds (Ref. 31184 ). Omnivorous; feed mainly on copepods and ostracods as juveniles and shift to diet of algae as adults (Ref. 94105 ). Breathe air when out of water (Ref. 31184 ). Juveniles in small tide pools (Ref. 41018 ). 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 ). Territories protected by males include depressions, crevices or piddock holes (Ref. 5981 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Distinct pairing (Ref. 205 ). During mating, the male fans the nest as if cleaning and ventilating the area. Males release sperm during periodic quivers to fertilize eggs in the nest much like other blennies (Ref. 55747 ). Males guard the egg-masses of various females (Ref. 5981 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 12.5 - 20.8, mean 18.6 (based on 504 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00741 (0.00337 - 0.01633), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.3   ±0.0 se; Based on diet studies. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (18 of 100) .
