Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00589 (0.00272 - 0.01274), b=3.09 (2.90 - 3.28), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 128 [62, 258] mg/100g ; Iron = 1.42 [0.76, 2.78] mg/100g ; Protein = 17.8 [16.1, 19.6] % ; Omega3 = 0.345 [0.128, 0.919] g/100g ; Selenium = 31.6 [12.1, 76.7] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 14.9 [3.6, 60.8] μg/100g ; Zinc = 1.46 [0.92, 2.45] mg/100g (wet weight);
