  • weight-length relationship: W = 0.018 * TL^2.895 (ref: fishbase)
  • Marine; reef-associated; depth range 10 - 60 m. Tropical (ref: fishbase)


  • males are assumed to differ from females by {p_Am} only
  • In view of low somatic maintenance, pseudodata k_J = 0.002 1/d is replaced by pseudodata k = 0.3
