In a study of two stocks of silver hake (Merluccius bilinearis), fish in the northern stock grew slower, probably due to colder temperatures, and their otoliths were subsequently larger (i.e., older) than those from southern-stock fish of the same standard length (Bolles and Begg, 2000).
Like silver hake (Merluccius bilinearis) which use sand waves (transverse ridges of sand) for refuge during the day (Auster et al., 2003) and that forage during the night (Bowman and Bowman, 1980; Auster et al., 1995), hagfishes on Heceta Bank may use mid-depth cobble and mud habitats for resting during the day and may forage at night.
