Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 4.3 - 12.8, mean 6.6 °C (based on 14 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00282 (0.00118 - 0.00673), b=3.10 (2.89 - 3.31), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.7   ±0.6 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Deepwater species with few large eggs.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  High vulnerability (56 of 100).
