Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00129 (0.00054 - 0.00308), b=2.92 (2.72 - 3.12), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.3   ±0.7 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Widerstandsfähigkeit (Ref. 120179):  sehr niedrig, Verdopplung der Population dauert mehr als 14 Jahre. (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Verwundbarkeit (Ref. 59153):  High to very high vulnerability (74 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 60.5 [35.5, 112.3] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.507 [0.284, 0.875] mg/100g ; Protein = 19.3 [17.1, 21.6] % ; Omega3 = 0.188 [0.079, 0.518] g/100g ; Selenium = 120 [61, 248] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 8.58 [2.52, 28.93] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.691 [0.480, 1.004] mg/100g (wet weight);
