Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults are found over rocky bottoms (Ref. 30573); off Guam, caught most abundantly from about 180 to 270 m (Ref. 9821). They feed mainly on fishes, shrimps, crabs, polychaetes, cephalopods and urochordates. Marketed mostly fresh. Caught mainly with bottom longlines and deep handlines.

Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01259 (0.00654 - 0.02422), b=2.98 (2.82 - 3.14), based on LWR estimates for species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.2 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.3).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100) .
