Description Found on the continental and insular shelves. Feeds on small bony fishes, squids, and shrimps. Reproduction is unknown but presumably similar to @C. taurus@. Uses its long body cavity and large, oily liver to regulate buoyancy. Not implicated in attacks on people. Utilized for human consumption and for its liver which has a high squalene content. [details]
