Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01288 (0.00559 - 0.02969), b=3.10 (2.92 - 3.28), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.6 ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
Nutrients (Ref. 124155
): Calcium = 214 [116, 442] mg/100g ; Iron = 1.7 [0.9, 3.1] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.6 [17.5, 19.7] % ; Omega3 = 0.34 [0.18, 0.61] g/100g ; Selenium = 25.8 [12.1, 54.5] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 9.63 [2.79, 34.92] μg/100g ; Zinc = 1.02 [0.66, 1.53] mg/100g (wet weight);
