Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Gadiformes (Cods) > Phycidae (Phycid hakes)
Etymology: Phycis: Taken from Greek, phykon = seaweed; because of the habits of this fish that lives hidden among them (Ref. 45335).   More on author: Goode, Bean.

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Marine; benthopelagic; non-migratory; depth range 90 - 1500 m (Ref. 40643), usually 360 - 800 m (Ref. 1371).   Temperate; 61°N - 24°N, 81°W - 40°W

Western Atlantic: Canada to straits of Florida, found in the outer continental shelves and slopes, but not abundant to south of Cape Hatteras.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 42.0 cm NG male/unsexed; (Ref. 58426)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Anal spines: 0. Dorsal fin with an extremely elongated ray, its length longer than head length. Longest pelvic-fin ray reaching beyond the posterior end of the anal-fin base. Olive on sides, belly pale; the margins of the dorsal, caudal and anal fins darker.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Epibenthic (Ref. 58426). Minimum depth at 90 m (Ref. 1371). Most abundant between 360 and 800 m. Feeds mostly on crustaceans (especially euphausiids, shrimps and amphipods (Ref. 5951)) but also on mollusks and fishes (Ref. 1371).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 2.9 - 5.7, mean 4.1 (based on 56 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6255   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00347 (0.00139 - 0.00867), b=3.13 (2.91 - 3.35), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.0 se; Based on diet studies.
