Notes on the distribution and ecology of Myxine glutinosa L.
MetadataShow full item record
The distribution and ecology of the hagfish, Myxine glutinosa, in the Bergen area is discussed, especially its depth occurrence. The ascent of the species to lesser depths in the inner fjords is seen in relation to the stability of the water masses. The total distribution of the species is reviewed, and it is suggested that a pronounced difference in size of the animals on both sides of the Atlantic may, if confirmed, indicate that there are different subspecies.
