Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 15.9 - 23.3, mean 18.3 °C (based on 122 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00575 (0.00280 - 0.01185), b=3.18 (3.00 - 3.36), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.0   ±0.66 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (12 of 100). Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 53.5 [27.7, 99.9] mg/100g; Iron = 0.328 [0.183, 0.606] mg/100g; Protein = 17.6 [16.6, 18.6] %; Omega3 = 0.386 [0.179, 0.789] g/100g; Selenium = 11.8 [4.9, 27.1] μg/100g; VitaminA = 27.7 [6.7, 111.1] μg/100g; Zinc = 0.793 [0.532, 1.181] mg/100g (wet weight);
