Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Indo-Pacific: East Africa to the Society Islands, north to Izu Islands, south to Australia; throughout Micronesia (Ref. 1602 ). Specimens from the Pacific Ocean, currently regarded as P. mossambica , are most likely to be P. armata (H. Motomura, unpubl. data). The name, P. mossambica ., remains valid for specimens from the Indian Ocean (Ref. 86966 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 24.3 - 29.3, mean 28.4 °C (based on 2873 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01259 (0.00609 - 0.02604), b=3.02 (2.85 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.6   ±0.6 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 117 [58, 318] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.747 [0.394, 1.339] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.3 [16.3, 20.2] % ; Omega3 = 0.242 [0.109, 0.648] g/100g ; Selenium = 29.3 [13.8, 67.9] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 171 [60, 475] μg/100g ; Zinc = 1.6 [1.0, 2.4] mg/100g (wet weight);
