Northwest Pacific: Xisha (Paracel) Islands and off the Zujiang River mouth, Hong Kong. A similar and perhaps identical species occurs off Maldives, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Ovoviviparous (Ref. 50449). Diet poorly known, but stomachs examined contained fishes and cephalopods. Caught by demersal fisheries operating in deepwater areas. Utilized for its meat, fins (low value) and liver oil (very high value)(Ref.58048).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5003   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00302 (0.00136 - 0.00671), b=3.15 (2.95 - 3.35), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.1   ±0.7 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Fec assumed to be <100).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High to very high vulnerability (70 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
