Eastern Atlantic: Kattegat and North Sea, northward to Spitsbergen, southern part of Barents Sea eastward to Kanin Banks and Novaya Zemlya, rare in White Sea, Iceland and eastern Greenland. Western Atlantic: Greenland and southeastern Labrador in Canada to New Jersey in USA (Ref. 7251 ).

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m 38.2 , range 38 - 41 cm
Max length : 100.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 4570 ); common length : 45.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 4570 ); max. published weight: 15.0 kg (Ref. 35388 ); max. reported age: 60 years (Ref. 35388 )

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found off the coast from 100-1000 m; juveniles found in fjords, bays and inshore waters. Normally trawled in deep water (Ref. 9988 ). Benthic (Ref. 5951 ). Feed mostly on euphausiids in summer; herrings in autumn and winter; capelins, herrings, euphausiids and ctenophores in spring. Gregarious throughout life. A slow growing species (Ref. 9988 ). Ovoviviparous, gonads of male and female do not mature at the same time. The spermatozoa are kept in the ovary of the female after copulation until such time that the eggs ripen paving the way for fertilization (Ref. 74488 ). Copulation takes place in late summer or early autumn (Ref. 35388 , 34817 ); in winter females give birth to 50,000-350,000 pelagic larvae of 8 mm length (Ref. 35388 ). Utilized fresh and frozen; eaten fried, broiled, microwaved and baked (Ref. 9988 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Gonads of male and female do not mature at the same time. The spermatozoa are kept in the ovary of the female after copulation until such time that the eggs ripen paving the way for fertilisation (Ref. 74488 ). Gives birth to 50,000-350,000 pelagic larvae of 8 mm length (Ref. 35388 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 0.6 - 9.3, mean 3.7 (based on 1514 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01023 (0.00623 - 0.01681), b=3.04 (2.90 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.0   ±0.68 se; Based on food items.
