Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ? , range 25 - ? cm
Max length : 50.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 9710 ); common length : 25.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 3283 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8 - 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 20-22; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 17 - 19. Color generally silvery with greenish tinge above. Pectoral fins long and pointed. Similar to D. longimana but differs in having 4 - 11 vertical gray spots on the upper half of the sides, and generally 8 dorsal spines (against none (spots) and generally 9 spines in D. longimana ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in various inshore habitats: sand or mud bottoms, reefs, estuaries and harbors (Ref. 9800 ). Found near coral and rock reefs at temperatures ranging from 26° to 29°C. Feeds on invertebrates and benthic fishes (Ref. 5213 ). Generally marketed fresh (Ref. 5284 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 25.5 - 29.1, mean 28.2 °C (based on 896 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01778 (0.00989 - 0.03197), b=3.06 (2.90 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.3   ±0.42 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.19-0.68). Prior r = 0.57, 95% CL = 0.37 - 0.85, Based on 1 stock assessment. Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate vulnerability (42 of 100). Climate Vulnerability (Ref. 125649 ):  High to very high vulnerability (75 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Unknown .
