Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5001 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00759 (0.00285 - 0.02020), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.4 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.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (23 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155
): Calcium = 470 [154, 1,133] mg/100g ; Iron = 2.89 [1.15, 7.06] mg/100g ; Protein = 16.6 [15.0, 18.2] % ; Omega3 = 0.283 [0.138, 0.591] g/100g ; Selenium = 43.6 [16.4, 94.6] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 108 [49, 236] μg/100g ; Zinc = 3.88 [2.17, 6.95] mg/100g (wet weight); based on nutrient studies.
