Barramundi Rock-cod (Cromileptes altivelis)
Category: Aquarium Fish Other
Barramundi Rock-cod is one among the varieties of the Barramundi line of fish that comes from the Latidae family. This fish breed is naturally rare over most of its varieties. They are the preferential target varieties in the live reef fish business and are, therefore, prone to experience population declines in regions where the business operates. It is reported to be more and more difficult to find for introducing into live reef food fish deal markets. These fish varieties are largely found in ponds and seaward well-urbanized coral reefs, usually in silt or dead areas. This fish can also live in tidal lakes and can be caught at a depth of 40 meters. Juveniles that have a body length of less than 15 cm are largely found inshore, in ponds and in sea grass and fringing reefs.
The Barramundi Rock-cod fish breed is an average-sized fish, with a body length of 70 centimeters. Individual fish breeds are recorded more generally from sheltered against exposed locations. Spear fishers and divers usually record better abundances from internal shelf reefs. Individual fish are habitually met in pairs even though little aggregations of three to six fish have been recorded at some locations. It is unknown if these little groups of Barramundi Rock-cod fish breeds are reproductive.
Worldwide and local abundance of the Barramundi Rock-cod fish breed is almost not known from both fishery independent and dependent information. Many underwater visual surveys recommended that this fish variety is uncommon in nature. At present, no coordinated or complete stock evaluation has been carried out on the Barramundi Rock-cod fish breed, so no proper information about their features are not known.
Some studies reveal that the Barramundi Rock-cod fish varieties are protogynous hermaphrodite. Male Barramundi Rock-cod fish in the population are as youthful as four years of age, with the amount of male breeds, showing a slow increase with 50% male demonstration taking place at 8.2 years of age. However, an amount of sexually transitional fish, ranging from six years to ten years of age is confirmed. These fish varieties attain the sexual maturity after two years of age. A more complete study of the model of sexual ontogeny has to await improved sampling of smaller fish.
