Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Benthopelagic. Juveniles carry out actual vertical migrations while adults undertake epibenthic movements along the bottom (Ref. 105772). Predatory activity occurs higher in the water column at night. Bases its diet on mesopelagic fishes and juvenile cephalopods, decapods, and euphausiids. However nocturnal diet is observed and includes gammarid amphipods, isopods, and macruran decapods (Ref. 105773). Members of the order Decapoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Precopulatory courtship ritual is common (through olfactory and tactile cues); usually indirect sperm transfer (Ref. 833).
