Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 37-43; Vertebrae : 34 - 37. Body firm, very deep, oval, and compressed. Operculum absent; gill opening reduced to a vertical slit on the side of the body; gill membrane broadly united to isthmus. Dorsal and anal fins preceded by a series of 5 to 10 blade-like spines with anterior and posterior points. Pelvic fins absent. Caudal fin deeply forked, the lower lobe longer than the upper. Color is gray above grading to silvery white towards the belly, with small black dots all over the body. Fins are faintly yellow; vertical fins with dark edges.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inshore species, usually in schools over muddy bottoms, associated with fish species like Nemipterus and Leiognathus . Adults feed on ctenophores, salps, medusae, and other zooplankton groups. Western populations spawn from late winter through the summer with peaks from April to June. Sold fresh in local markets or shipped frozen to urban centers. Used in Chinese medicine (Ref. 12166 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 21.9 - 29.1, mean 28.1 °C (based on 1636 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5313   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01905 (0.01444 - 0.02515), b=3.02 (2.94 - 3.10), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.3   ±0.1 se; based on diet studies. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.24-0.26; tmax=7; Fec=5,470). Prior r = 0.57, 95% CL = 0.37 - 0.85, Based on 9 stock assessments. Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low to moderate vulnerability (31 of 100) . Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   High .
