Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 24.6 - 29, mean 27.8 °C (based on 812 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.03236 (0.01523 - 0.06876), b=2.89 (2.71 - 3.07), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.7   ±0.00 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 ):  Low vulnerability (21 of 100) . Climate Vulnerability (Ref. 125649 ):   (0 of 100) . Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   High . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 45.7 [26.9, 72.6] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.547 [0.351, 0.873] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.5 [17.4, 19.7] % ; Omega3 = 0.121 [0.076, 0.185] g/100g ; Selenium = 26.3 [14.1, 49.1] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 78.6 [21.9, 266.2] μg/100g ; Zinc = 1.32 [0.87, 1.95] mg/100g (wet weight);
