Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dark spot in the hind part of first dorsal fin, caudal fin with dark stripes. Series of skin folds with serrated edges running obliquely down below the lateral line (Ref. 35388).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Maximum depth reported at 530 m (Ref. 58426). In the Barents Sea usually between 100 to 200 m at temperatures of 1°-3°C and salinities not less than 34 ppt; in the White Sea in somewhat shallower waters at temperatures between 6-12°C and salinities of 23-29 ppt. Prefers sandy bottoms (Ref. 7297). Benthic to epibenthic (Ref. 58426). Feeds on polychaetes and crustaceans (Ref. 35388).
