Brief Summary

Read full entry

This motile species is known exclusively from deep  waters (range 930-2222 m) and has been recorded from the deeper parts of the Norwegian Sea, the Laptev Sea and  probably the Sea of Beaufort. As with many deep-sea species very little is known about its biology. Nereis gracilis is likely to be an omnivorous scavenger.
