Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines : 2; Anal soft rays : 6. Body pale tan with distinctive yellow stripe from eye to caudal fin; tail yellow. Less brightly colored than other species and is the only one with a single yellow stripe along side (Ref. 26938 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found over sandy areas of lagoon and seaward reefs (Ref. 9710 ). Often in schools (Ref. 26938 ). Forms schools with the smallmouth grunt ( Haemulon chrysargyreum ), an association regarded as social protective mimicry (Ref. 52492 ). Juveniles are common in seagrass beds (Ref. 9710 ). Feeds on benthic invertebrates (Ref. 7313 ). Marketed fresh (Ref. 3792 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 23.4 - 28, mean 26.6 °C (based on 720 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01047 (0.00920 - 0.01192), b=3.10 (3.06 - 3.14), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.2   ±0.1 se; based on diet studies. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low to moderate vulnerability (35 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Medium . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 29.6 [13.3, 56.9] mg/100g; Iron = 0.508 [0.238, 0.895] mg/100g; Protein = 19.3 [17.5, 21.1] %; Omega3 = 0.218 [0.126, 0.415] g/100g; Selenium = 15.4 [8.0, 29.7] μg/100g; VitaminA = 47.6 [15.2, 179.0] μg/100g; Zinc = 0.768 [0.467, 1.155] mg/100g (wet weight);
