Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 8 - 20.6, mean 13.4 °C (based on 1072 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00692 (0.00297 - 0.01609), b=3.13 (2.93 - 3.33), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.1   ±0.25 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 (10 of 100). Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 231 [62, 717] mg/100g; Iron = 0.79 [0.28, 2.64] mg/100g; Protein = 16.2 [14.3, 18.0] %; Omega3 = 0.377 [0.126, 1.088] g/100g; Selenium = 11.7 [3.2, 37.1] μg/100g; VitaminA = 132 [15, 1,108] μg/100g; Zinc = 1.34 [0.64, 3.01] mg/100g (wet weight);
