Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00589 (0.00265 - 0.01309), b=3.02 (2.83 - 3.21), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.44 se; based on food items.
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (Assuming fec > 10,000).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100).
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
