Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A deep-slope upper continental rise species, common in deep waters of most oceans (Ref. 1371). Bathypelagic (Ref. 58426). Feeds on a variety of benthic invertebrates (especially crustaceans and holothuroids) when young, switching to primarily mesopelagic and bathypelagic fish, and sea urchins and cephalopods as adults (Ref. 1371). Sex ratio was 2.6:1 male to female (n = 449) in the Rockall Tough, N.E. Atlantic (Ref. 40742).
