Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Gobio artvinicus is distinguished from all its congeners in Anatolia and adjacent areas by having the following combination of characters: scales on belly equal or greater than pupil; head length 24-26% SL, 1.1-1.3 times body depth; snout pointed; slightly shorter than postorbital distance (postorbital distance 1.0-1.2 times snout length); width of mouth gape 1.0-1.4 times its length; preanal length 68-72% SL; prepelvic length 47.0-51.0% SL; caudal peduncle length 2.0-2.5 times its depth; distance between pelvic-fin origin and anal-fin origin 2.8-3.3 times distance between anus and anal-fin origin; length of caudal-fin lobes not equal, upper lobe commonly longer than lower lobe; lateral line with 38-40 + 1-2 scales; scales rows between lateral line and dorsal fin origin 6; scales between lateral line and anal fin origin 4-5; scales between anus and anal fin origin 4-6; scales between posterior extremity of pelvic fin base and anus 5-6; and 7-8 mid-lateral blotches (Ref. 115536).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in streams with swift and warm flowing water, and cobbled and pebbled bottoms (Ref. 115536).

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=0.00794 (0.00353 - 0.01790), b=3.06 (2.86 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
