Sometimes ascends rivers. Feeds on bottom fishes (croakers, soles, hairtails, sharp-nosed sharks and other species, skates, shrimps, cuttlefish, sea snails), crustaceans and molluscs. Apparently viviparous. Size at birth about 71 to 72 cm. Potentially dangerous. Utilized fresh for human consumption. [details]
