Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00352 - 0.02589), b=3.01 (2.78 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.4   ±0.7 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (62 of 100) .
Climate Vulnerability (Ref. 125649):   (0 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 49.3 [29.5, 82.7] mg/100g ; Iron = 1.53 [0.98, 2.26] mg/100g ; Protein = 20.5 [18.1, 22.5] % ; Omega3 = 0.435 [0.287, 0.639] g/100g ; Selenium = 27.9 [16.5, 44.7] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 16.1 [6.5, 38.5] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.662 [0.501, 0.920] mg/100g (wet weight);
