The species holds pride of place as the first deep-sea angler ever found. The original specimen washed ashore in Greenland in 1833; at 22 inches long, it is still the largest one on record.

Since no females of this species have ever been found bearing parasitic males, biologists assume they are fertilized by free-swimming mates.
