Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00776 (0.00444 - 0.01358), b=3.09 (2.93 - 3.25), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.45 se; based on food items.
Generation time: 4.5 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 1 growth studies.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Medio, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 1.4 - 4.4 anni (tm=3-4; tmax=14; Fec=1,000-4,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (43 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 73.8 [36.0, 142.9] mg/100g ; Iron = 1.44 [0.86, 2.24] mg/100g ; Protein = 16.9 [14.9, 18.6] % ; Omega3 = 0.63 [0.29, 1.33] g/100g ; Selenium = 44.3 [19.6, 90.0] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 7.57 [2.51, 23.03] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.886 [0.589, 1.300] mg/100g (wet weight);
