Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in the continental shelf and slope (Ref. 7300). Oviparous (Ref. 205). Eggs are encased in horny shells (Ref. 205). Caught with bottom trawls but not utilized at present although its meat is of high quality (Ref. 6871, 9904) but of low value (Ref.58048).
