Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 14 - 27.8, mean 24 °C (based on 564 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00759 (0.00704 - 0.00817), b=3.08 (3.06 - 3.10), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.4   ±0.3 se; based on diet studies. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Medium . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 184 [108, 359] mg/100g; Iron = 1.18 [0.63, 2.04] mg/100g; Protein = 19 [18, 20] %; Omega3 = 0.243 [0.129, 0.403] g/100g; Selenium = 48.1 [26.7, 89.8] μg/100g; VitaminA = 20 [8, 53] μg/100g; Zinc = 1.49 [1.09, 2.12] mg/100g (wet weight);
