  • preferred temperature 22 C; (ref: fishbase)
  • 50-1100 m deep, usually 150-600 m deep. Bathydemersal, larvae and juveniles are pelagic (ref: Wiki)
  • zygoparous (intermediate between oviparity and viviparity) (ref: Wiki)
  • length-weight: W = 0.014*L^3.091 (ref: fishbase)


  • In view of low somatic maintenance, pseudodata k_J = 0.002 1/d is replaced by pseudodata k = 0.3
