Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosed from its congeners in Western Balkans and Adriatic basin by having the following characters: scales on lateral line 50-59; mouth arched and lower lip with thin cornified sheath; 7-8/1/5 scales in transverse row between dorsal-fin and pelvic-fin origins; dorsal fin with 8-9 branched rays; and 19-24 gill rakers (Ref. 59043).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00932 (-0.15491 - 0.17355), b=3.03 (2.94 - 3.12), based on LWR estimates for this family-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.2 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
