Habitat Marine.        
Water Salt water
Habitat Notes Inhabits deep, cold (4-7°C) waters over steep continental slopes, ocean ridges and sea-mounts. Appears to be dispersed over both rough bottoms and steep, rough grounds where it feeds on crustaceans and fish. In New Zealand, the main prey include mesopelagic and benthopelagic prawns, fish, and squid, with other organisms such as mysids, amphipods and euphausiids occasionally being important (Ref. 9072). Grows very slowly and is one of the longest lived fish species known. The fishery targets sporadically formed dense spawning and non-spawning aggregations. Marketed fresh and frozen; eaten steamed, fried, microwaved and baked (Ref. 9988).
Depth Range From 180 to 1809 meters.
