  • Ovoviviparous (ref: fishbase)
  • Preferred temp 17 C, usually 0 - 175 m deep (ref: fishbase)
  • Endothermic, oophagous, as developing embryos feed on fertilized eggs to get nutrients once the yolk sac is depleted (ref: ADW)


  • Males are assumed to differ from females by {p_Am} and E_Hp only
  • Birth weight is excluded because it does not exceed 5 kg (ADW), but it is probably much less
