No habitat information is available for Mesoplodon ginkgodens. The habits of close relatives, Mesoplodon densirostris and Mesoplodon peruvianus, suggest that M. ginkodens prefers slightly cooler areas within the temperate/tropical zone and also upwelling regions. Upwelling regions are highly productive due to nutrient-rich bottom waters cycling to the surface.
Habitat Regions: temperate ; tropical ; saltwater or marine
Aquatic Biomes: pelagic
