Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 90-116; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 80 - 96; Vértebra: 50 - 54. Dorsal origin above middle of upper eye. Caudal imperfectly rounded.

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults occur on mud bottom (Ref. 2850). They move into deep water in winter (Ref. 2850). Produce large amounts of slime which may cover other fishes when caught in trawls (Ref. 4925). Marketed as mink food (Ref. 4925) or as fillet (Ref. 2850).
