Etymology: Eustomias: Greek, eu = good + Greek, stoma = mouth (Ref. 45335);  jimcraddocki: Named for Dr. James E. Craddock of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in recognition of his many contributions to our knowledge of deep-sea fishes (Ref. 51076).

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Marine; bathypelagic; depth range 0 - 809 m (Ref. 51076).   Deep-water, preferred ?; 41°N - 26°N

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Northwest Atlantic: known only from slope water south of Georges Bank to the northern Sargasso Sea.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 14.3 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 51076)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 24-25; Anal soft rays: 40 - 41. Two pectoral rays (one as tiny rudiment), and a barbel with three branches arising proximal to midlength of the stem, followed by two ovoid swellings (bulbs), either contiguous or separated, and a large terminal bulb. The tear-shaped terminal bulb larger in diameter than the stem or proximal bulbs, with the acuminate end posteriad and upturned dorsally, and bears multiple filaments and bulblets in two groups, one at its anterodorsal surface and one at its terminus. Barbels relatively short (<= 20% standard length) (Ref. 51076).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Probably undergoes some form of vertical migration from below 500 m during the day and within the upper 100 m at night (Ref. 51076).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.2   ±0.8 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming tmax>3).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
