Description Occurs mostly over the continental slope, down to 200 m and more. Swims deeper at day, often migrates upward at night. Feeds on a wide variety of fishes (bramids, coryphaenids, scombrids, trachipterids, etc.), crustaceans and cephalopods. No special fishery, but appears as by-catch in the tuna longline fishery caught usually at depths from 100 to 300 m. Marketed mostly frozen and prepared as fish cake in Japan (Ref. 6181). Its very oily flesh may have purgative properties (Ref. 9784). [details]
