Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Northeast Atlantic: eastern central Greenland southeast to just north of the Faroes, Jan Mayen Island, around Spitsbergen and northern parts of Barents Sea. Arctic: Franklin Bay, North Western Territory and Alaska (Ref. 11976); also the Kara and Beaufort seas.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 51.7 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 11976)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 96. Pelvic fins small (Ref. 4695). Uniformly or mostly dark, with 5-8 short, light cross-bands; band across nape, if present, straight, not curved forward; peritoneum dark, with dense brownish-black dots (Ref. 4695).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found on muddy bottoms (Ref. 4695). Benthic (Ref. 58426). Feeds mainly on epibenthic animals. With increase in size, shrimps and euphausiids are ingested in greater quantities but unlike L. reticulatus, its ingestion of smaller prey items does not decrease. Changes in feeding habit with size are relatively small (Ref. 13532).
