Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 24 - 27; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines : 1; Anal soft rays : 9. Spinous dorsal represented by a series of small spines, free from membrane; soft dorsal fin triangular and placed well back on body; caudal fin small and finely forked; anal fin spine small and broad, the fin mirroring the soft dorsal fin; pectorals truncate (Ref. 6885 ). Pale mottled brown, varying from olive green to yellow brown dorsally; creamy white ventrally; a bright silvery patch between operculum and pectorals extending to throat and bounded above by a dark band that extends forward through eye to snout; breeding males with bright red snout and phosphorescent snout (Ref. 6885 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in kelp beds, eelgrass, rocky areas, and over sand bottoms (Ref. 2850 ). Usually near the surface in schools, sometimes in dense schools well offshore (Ref. 2850 ). Feeds on small crustaceans and fish larvae (Ref. 6885 ). Minimum depth reported taken from Ref. 57178.

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

Nest is built, usually in kelp. Males are territorial (Ref. 6885 ) and guard the nest.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 8.9 - 17.3, mean 10.4 (based on 184 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 1.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00257 (0.00099 - 0.00666), b=3.14 (2.91 - 3.37), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.4   ±0.42 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tm=1; tmax=9; Fec=1,200; K=0.5).
