Biologie     Verklarende woordenlijst (b.v. epibenthic)

Occur in midwater, usually below 400 m and occasionally in shallow water in the northern part of its range. Feed on crustaceans while swimming with its mouth open (Ref. 5377). Mesopelagic (Ref. 58302) and bathypelagic (Ref. 58426). Oviparous, with planktonic leptocephali (Ref. 32364). Degenerative changes in males and females suggest semelparity (Ref. 32364). Minimum depth from Ref. 58302.

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 4.3 - 21.1, mean 10.2 °C (based on 3474 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6270   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00102 (0.00046 - 0.00225), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this BS (Ref. 93245).
