Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-13; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 12; Vertebrae: 25. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following characters: absence of median predorsal scales; corner of mouth with a large canine tooth. Colouration: body of males primarily olive-green, the upper body with 0–4 rows of metallic blue spots, not overlain in black; females are unmarked and olivaceous overall (Ref. 123183).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Usually in kelp and other weedy areas at 2-25 m (Ref. 123183).

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

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 17.6 - 26.8, mean 23.3 °C (based on 152 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00490 (0.00203 - 0.01181), b=3.11 (2.90 - 3.32), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 30.4 [14.7, 57.9] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.301 [0.175, 0.553] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.9 [16.2, 21.2] % ; Omega3 = 0.401 [0.204, 0.799] g/100g ; Selenium = 8.33 [3.65, 18.84] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 75.7 [18.2, 320.4] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.975 [0.612, 1.843] mg/100g (wet weight);
