Brief Summary

Read full entry


In Hawaiian waters, this species appears to be a strong vertical migrator and may be a member of the mesopelagic boundary fauna as it seems to be more common off Hawaii over bottom depths of less than 700m than in more offshore waters (Young, 1995). In the tropical eastern North Atlantic, however, this species has a distribution more similar to its congener (see Distribution.)
