Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 4.2 - 9.6, mean 7 °C (based on 235 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00052 (0.00027 - 0.00103), b=3.13 (2.94 - 3.32), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.5   ±0.55 se; based on food items.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 4.5 - 14 anni (Assuming tmax>10).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Very high vulnerability (81 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 13.4 [7.4, 26.5] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.264 [0.157, 0.446] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.8 [16.5, 21.0] % ; Omega3 = 0.305 [0.134, 0.839] g/100g ; Selenium = 33.6 [14.9, 73.1] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 9.22 [2.02, 41.15] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.253 [0.178, 0.364] mg/100g (wet weight);
