Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 6.1 - 14.3, mean 10.8 °C (based on 202 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5625   [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 ):  3.2   ±0.31 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 = 144 [40, 408] mg/100g; Iron = 0.649 [0.235, 2.056] mg/100g; Protein = 16.4 [14.5, 18.2] %; Omega3 = 0.358 [0.119, 1.014] g/100g; Selenium = 13.4 [3.9, 43.3] μg/100g; VitaminA = 95.4 [11.7, 780.4] μg/100g; Zinc = 0.975 [0.488, 2.126] mg/100g (wet weight);
