Info

Spirula spirula (Linnaeus, 1758)

Distribution Tropical and subtropical oceanic waters worldwide, where the water temperature at 400 m is 10ºC or warmer.

Length Rarely exceeds 45 mm mantle length.

Habitat This is a mesopelagic species, inhabiting from 600 to 700 m during the day and found in depths less than 300 m at night. Capture of young at depths between 1 000 and 1 750 m suggests that females possibly lay eggs on the bottom of continental slope.
