Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00851 (0.00513 - 0.01411), b=3.05 (2.91 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Generation time: 0.7 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 1 growth studies.
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (23 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155
): Calcium = 213 [76, 402] mg/100g ; Iron = 1.05 [0.66, 1.65] mg/100g ; Protein = 16.6 [15.8, 17.3] % ; Omega3 = 0.256 [0.122, 0.533] g/100g ; Selenium = 326 [149, 728] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 4.24 [2.00, 9.56] μg/100g ; Zinc = 1.37 [0.87, 2.08] mg/100g (wet weight); based on nutrient studies.
