Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription An oceanic species that visits coasts and occurs near the bottom at depths down to 500 m. Feeds on pelagic (lancetfishes, clupeoids, scombroids, and small billfishes) and bottom fishes (hakes), and squids. Ovoviviparous, with uterine cannibalism, 2-4 young per brood. Stuns its prey with its long caudal fin. Utilized for human consumption, liver oil for vitamins, skin for leather, and fins for shark-fin soup. Marketed fresh and may be broiled, baked or grilled, but unsuitable for steaming, boiling or frying; meat may be salted and dried (Ref. 9987). [details]
