Silver stripe up to twice eye diameter at widest, lost in fishes over 10 cm SL. Dorsal fin origin sits at midway between end of the caudal vertebra and the posterior margin of the eye, its longest ray scarcely equal to the base of the fin, being equal to head posterior of eye; origin of anal fin under ninth dorsal ray. Penaeidae in surrounding area of Patos Lagoon, southern Brazil: While ADW staff and contributors provide references to books and websites that we believe are reputable, we cannot necessarily endorse the contents of references beyond our control.

The species spawns at austral spring and summer Table 1.

Human uses

We compiled data available on taxonomy, phylogeny, ecology, fisheries and organized conceptually the life cycle of the species according to modern estuarine-use classification. The last column is a standardization of classification of estuarine-use functional groups following Elliott et al.

Based on morphological and meristic characteristics, the distribution of the species was divided into four distinct populations along the Brazilian Coast Silva Though we edit our accounts for accuracy, we cannot guarantee all information in those accounts. Although the species is frequently caught as adults in the coastal zone, there is no record of spawning in the marine environment, suggesting that the species use the marine habitat as a temporary or transitory environment.

Reproductive aspects Lycengraulis grossidens is a split spawning species Oliveira and has mean fecundity of 3, oocytes minimum: Usually migrating from estuaries or the sea, but possibly the limnichthys of Lake Maracaibo and the amazonensis represent purely freshwater forms. The guild approach to categorizing estuarine fish assemblages: Mitochondrial phylogenomics of lycengralis family Engraulididae and recurrent origins of pronounced miniaturization in the order Clupeiformes. Clupeoid fishes of the world Suborder Clupeoidei.

This species is abundant in estuaries along the Southwest Atlantic Coast and is important for recreational fishing, and as bycatch of shrimp fisheries.

Towards an Ecoystem Integration A. Considering the information provided by Weisswhere it is reported that: Although temperature could be considered as a factor to explain this latitudinal behavior, the magnitude of the estuarine systems along the western Atlantic Coast is also a good argument to explain the estuarine use.
