Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit salt and brackish waters of bays and estuaries, penetrating into fresh water (Ref. 1601 ). Juveniles are sometimes found in streams within 5-10 km of the sea (Ref. 2847 ). Eggs are guarded and fanned by the male parent (Ref. 205 ).

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

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 26.6 - 29.2, mean 28.7 °C (based on 1282 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01288 (0.00598 - 0.02775), b=3.05 (2.86 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.0   ±0.37 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (18 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Unknown .
