Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 26.6 - 29.3, mean 28.7 °C (based on 1890 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01023 (0.00643 - 0.01629), b=3.03 (2.90 - 3.16), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.0   ±0.66 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate to high vulnerability (50 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Very high .
