Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5001 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00794 - 0.01149), b=2.95 (2.90 - 3.00), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.9 ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Moderate to high vulnerability (52 of 100).
Nutrients (Ref. 124155
): Calcium = 37.2 [18.6, 70.5] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.409 [0.227, 0.810] mg/100g ; Protein = 16 [14, 18] % ; Omega3 = 0.398 [0.188, 0.764] g/100g ; Selenium = 14.2 [7.0, 31.7] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 10.8 [3.6, 35.4] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.583 [0.400, 0.901] mg/100g (wet weight); based on nutrient studies.
