Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00539 - 0.01856), b=2.95 (2.79 - 3.11), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trofisk nivå (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.50 se; based on food items.
Resiliens (Ref. 120179):  Låg, lägsta populationsfördubblingstid 4,5-14 år (tmax=12).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High to very high vulnerability (65 of 100) .
