Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01778 (0.00807 - 0.03917), b=3.05 (2.87 - 3.23), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.4 ±0.5 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 (14 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155
): Calcium = 99.6 [41.3, 278.6] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.464 [0.220, 0.884] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.6 [17.5, 19.8] % ; Omega3 = 0.734 [0.288, 1.848] g/100g ; Selenium = 18 [9, 38] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 11.4 [3.8, 34.2] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.767 [0.491, 1.272] mg/100g (wet weight);
