Estimates based on models
Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969
): 0.7 - 19.2, mean 9.7 °C (based on 158 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5166 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00102 (0.00046 - 0.00225), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.9 ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): Very Low, minimum population doubling time more than 14 years (Fec > 300,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Very high vulnerability (86 of 100) .
