Etymology: Lutjanus: Malay, ikan lutjan, name of a fish .
More on author: Cuvier .

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

Marine; reef-associated; depth range 9 - 100 m (Ref. 9710 ). Tropical; 31°N - 30°S, 30°E - 77°E (Ref. 55 )

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

Western Indian Ocean: Red Sea east to the Arabian Sea and south to Natal, South Africa. Records of this species from the eastern Indian Ocean and the Western Central Pacific are probably misidentifications of Lutjanus malabaricus (Ref. 55 ). Has been misidentified as Lutjanus coccineus by recent authors.

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m 51.1 , range 50 - 60 cm
Max length : 100.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 9710 ); common length : 70.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 5450 ); max. published weight: 23.0 kg (Ref. 469 ); max. reported age: 13 years (Ref. 1488 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-14; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 8 - 9. Dorsal profile of head angular, snout steeply sloped. Preorbital bone broad, with horizontal grooves behind and below the eye. Anterior and posterior nostrils widely spaced. Preopercular notch and knob poorly developed. Scale rows on back rising obliquely above lateral line. Juveniles with a broad brown bar from upper jaw to beginning of dorsal fin and a series of reddish horizontal lines on sides.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit coral and rocky reefs to depths of at least 100 m (Ref. 30573 ). Off South Africa they display a preference for slightly silty, turbid regions in the vicinity of sometimes shallow, offshore banks. Captured mainly at night on coral banks off Mafia Island (Tanzania) in 9 to 12 m and off Zanzibar in about 75 m. They are active at night feeding over sandy or rubble bottoms (Ref. 9710 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 23.4 - 29.2, mean 26.8 °C (based on 328 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01445 (0.00822 - 0.02541), b=2.96 (2.82 - 3.10), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.5   ±0.7 se; based on diet studies. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (K=0.24; tm=2.5-6; tmax=13). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate vulnerability (39 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   High . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 20.1 [12.1, 30.3] mg/100g; Iron = 0.298 [0.190, 0.484] mg/100g; Protein = 18.6 [17.1, 19.9] %; Omega3 = 0.126 [0.086, 0.186] g/100g; Selenium = 74.5 [44.1, 119.9] μg/100g; VitaminA = 173 [33, 695] μg/100g; Zinc = 0.311 [0.241, 0.432] mg/100g (wet weight);
