Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 2.5 - 11.7, mean 6.4 °C (based on 72 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00407 (0.00171 - 0.00969), b=3.11 (2.90 - 3.32), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.4   ±0.0 se; based on diet studies.
Generation time: 5.9 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 2 growth studies.
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.19-0.22; tmax=10).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (40 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 62.2 [31.7, 120.7] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.235 [0.139, 0.445] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.2 [17.2, 19.3] % ; Omega3 = 0.515 [0.269, 1.000] g/100g ; Selenium = 12.8 [5.5, 29.7] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 66.3 [19.3, 217.4] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.79 [0.52, 1.20] mg/100g (wet weight);
