Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5166   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00427 (0.00236 - 0.00770), b=2.98 (2.81 - 3.15), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.5   ±0.80 se; based on food items.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Molto basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione più di 14 anni (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Very high vulnerability (81 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 65.5 [22.9, 214.0] mg/100g ; Iron = 1.19 [0.45, 3.05] mg/100g ; Protein = 17.1 [15.3, 19.0] % ; Omega3 = 0.243 [0.111, 0.534] g/100g ; Selenium = 88.4 [32.3, 243.3] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 66.3 [13.4, 322.0] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.656 [0.325, 1.680] mg/100g (wet weight);
