Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01175 (0.00712 - 0.01939), b=3.09 (2.94 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.46 se; based on food items.
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Medio, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo de 1.4-4.4 años (tmax=4; Fec=2,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (48 of 100) .
