Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 4.2 - 11.4, mean 6.6 °C (based on 1170 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.6875   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.3   ±0.41 se; based on food items. Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (19 of 100).
