Spawning Cycles: (1/y)   Ref:
Comments: Spawning occurs in waters 85-200 m deep several hundred km offshore (Ref. 6390). Spawning probably occurs more than once during this brief period (Ref. 30466). Seasonal migration in South Australia appears to be associated with spawning: movement is predominantly to the west prior to spawning, and to the east just after spawning (Ref. 6390).
