Description Found on outer continental and insular shelves and upper slopes in depths of 100 to 400 m, also inshore and down to 400 m. Feeds on bony fishes, sharks (Ref.6574), hake, and squid. Ovoviviparous, number of young 9 to 20 in a litter. Probably strong-swimming. Generally, very active and aggresive. Quick to bite when captured, but too small to be very dangerous to people. Livers used in Japan for oil. Maximum lengh may reach 214 cm, but this is uncertain. [details]
