Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 8.3 - 20.1, mean 13 °C (based on 250 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trofisk nivå (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.6 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
