  • Ovoviparity (aplacental viviparity), with embryos feeding on other ova produced by the mother (oophagy) after the yolk sac is absorbed (ref: fishbase)
  • Preferred temp 26 C, usually 0 - 800 m deep (ref: fishbase)
  • FL 203 cm = TL 247 cm; Ww (in g) = 2.528e-3 * (FL in cm)^3.26 (ref: KohlCase1996)

  • Males are assumed to differ from females by {p_Am} and E_Hp only
