Habitat and Ecology
Oviparous. A recent study of the distribution and reproductive biology indicates that this species appears to produce eggs all year round with no detectable spawning season. Populations appear to be partly segregated (Kokohu et al. 2003).

Red List Criteria
The effective implementation of a national management plan (under the FAO International Plan of Action for the Conservation and Management of Sharks: IPOA?Sharks) will help to facilitate the conservation and management of all chondrichthyan species in the country. Japan?s National Plan Of Action was available in 2001.
