Atlantic Ocean: in the north up to 37°-41°N, southern limit to the west is 30°N and in the east 11°N; SW Atlantic at 30°S, 42°W; SE Atlantic between 16°-22°N and 2°-7°W.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Fairly common in deep oceanic waters, usually living deeper than 500 m during the day. Smaller individuals migrate to near-surface or even surface waters at night. Feeds on midwater fishes and crustaceans (Ref. 2802).
