Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 26.1 - 29.3, mean 28.6 °C (based on 1747 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00457 (0.00178 - 0.01174), b=3.10 (2.88 - 3.32), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.0   ±0.66 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate to high vulnerability (48 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Very high . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 38.7 [22.4, 55.6] mg/100g; Iron = 0.679 [0.420, 1.045] mg/100g; Protein = 19.8 [17.2, 22.1] %; Omega3 = 0.0737 [, ] g/100g; Selenium = 44 [23, 77] μg/100g; VitaminA = 29.5 [6.0, 164.5] μg/100g; Zinc = 1.94 [1.40, 2.60] mg/100g (wet weight);
