Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Benthic fish occurring on sandy-muddy bottoms of brackish waters (Ref. 35381 ) and coastal rivers (Ref. 36695 ). Found on soft bottoms of shallow turbid water near river mouths. The species has a peculiar mode of egg incubation wherein the female banjo catfish carries the eggs firmly attached to the underside of the body. This seems to be an adaptation to facilitate the oxygenation of the eggs in muddy environments. Reproduction probably occurs during the earlier part of the year (Ref. 35381 ).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00204 (0.00099 - 0.00420), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.3   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives Generation time: 3.9 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 1 growth studies. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.28). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate vulnerability (44 of 100) . Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Unknown .
