Recorded at 165 meters.
Habitat: pelagic. Oceanic, possibly occurring in depths between 150 and 1,000 m (Ref. 6871). Feeds on planktivorous prey such as euphausid shrimps, copepods and jellyfish (Ref. 6871). May also eat small midwater fishes. Possibly less active than the basking and whale sharks (Ref. 6871). Its feeding habits and habitat suggest that it may be a rare catch in the future. Probably ovoviviparous. Males mature by 400 cm (Ref. 6871). Preyed on by the semiparasitic cookiecutter shark, @Isitius cbrasiliensis@.
