From 100 to 400 meters.
Habitat: bathypelagic. Body pink to purple with numerous white spots; fins and front of snout red; small juveniles without white spots on body. Attains 180 cm and 100 kg. Flesh excellent; the enormous pectoral fin muscles are dark red and resemble a fine beef-steak in texture and flavour. A member of the lower epipelagic community, the opah feeds on squid and fishes (including some benthic species) and is usually found well offshore. It is a swift swimmer, flapping its strong pectoral fins in the manner of a penguin to "fly" through the water. The opah is found in all oceans, including the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, but not in polar waters.
