Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 24.6 - 29, mean 28 °C (based on 938 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01380 (0.00641 - 0.02973), b=3.03 (2.86 - 3.20), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.0   ±0.00 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (K=0.22; tmax=14). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate to high vulnerability (48 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   High . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 23 [9, 75] mg/100g; Iron = 0.518 [0.202, 1.302] mg/100g; Protein = 18.7 [16.6, 20.5] %; Omega3 = 0.084 [0.038, 0.174] g/100g; Selenium = 40.4 [13.3, 119.1] ╬╝g/100g; VitaminA = 39.4 [11.8, 126.5] ╬╝g/100g; Zinc = 1.86 [0.84, 3.33] mg/100g (wet weight);
