  • EW = 0.9011 * TW + 1.8591, eviscerated and total weight in g (females); EW = 0.0948 * FL ^2.4673, eviscerated weight (g), fork length for females (cm) (ref: ShinoHazi2007)
  • Occurs in shallow coral reefs, as well as deeper offshore waters. A nocturnal species, hiding in deep crevices or under coral edges during the day; at night it usually moves over sand and grass beds, taking mainly crabs and other small crustaceans (Ref. 3634). Capable of producing sounds. (ref: fishbase)


  • Author_mod_1: I found information on the number of eggs per female as a function of length in Anon2013 that was much higher than in Anon2015 but chose to not include it as the temperature was not provided
  • Author_mod_1: I was surprised to observe that the weights coefficient for ab changed so much the parameter values
