Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Traditionally fished for its gigantic shell and edible flesh. Suffered from frequent local over collecting. Deeper populations seem to occur in the northern part of its geographical range (Ref. 349). Occurs in shallow subtidal sand flats. Feeds on sedentary polychaete worms (Ref. 349). Members of the order Neogastropoda are mostly gonochoric and broadcast spawners. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktonic trocophore larvae and later into juvenile veligers before becoming fully grown adults (Ref. 833).
