Etymology: Merluccius: Latin, mar, maris = the sea + Latin, lucius = pike (Ref. 45335);  tasmanicus: Named after its type locality, Tasman Bay (Ref. 57718).

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecologia

Western Pacific: Japan and New Zealand. Southeast Pacific and Southwest Atlantic: Patagonian, Chilean and Argentine waters. Based on the geographical distance between the populations and some morphometric and meristic differences observed, assigning a subspecific name to each of these populations seems appropriate.

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.1   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Medio, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 1.4 - 4.4 anni (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (35 of 100) .
Climate Vulnerability (Ref. 125649):   (0 of 100) .
