Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Freshwater; demersal; depth range 50 - 170 m (Ref. 2058), usually 50 - 70 m (Ref. 2058). Boreal

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm 5.8  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 14.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 2058)
Occurs where the bottom is sand, sand-and-stone and sand-and-silt. Stays at a depth range of 3-15 m during the winter months. Spawns from mid May until the end of June, over sand and stone bottom, 3-5 m depth, as well as in shallow inlets and tributary mouths. Eggs are deposited under stones and are guarded by the male. Males are larger than females. (Ref. 2058).

= 1.0020 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.3 se; based on diet studies.
Generation time: 4.8 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 1 growth studies.
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tm=2; tmax=6; K=0.23).
