. California fish and game. Fisheries -- California; Game and game-birds -- California; Fishes -- California; Animal Population Groups; Pêches; Gibier; Poissons. ir)4 CALIFOKXIA I'lSlI AND (iAME Xoither Neave (IDof)) nor l.ai'kiiis (]9()4) listed the lengths or' V('i<:li1s of skilfisli lakcii in surl'aec vice and fishes while being set and retrieved, as well as on the bottom. j Information concerning the depths at ^llicJ^ large skilfish were caught oflf Japan is lacking, but there are a few records for eastern] racific Avaters. These indicate that individuals 44 to 70 inches long, ! anil weighing up to 175 pounds, have been caught on or near the bot-i torn in 150 to 240 fathoms on baited halibut lines (Thomj^son, 1916, : 1917; Clemens and Wilby, 1946, 1961). COLOR The body of young skilfish is dark-gray or blue-black, conspicu- ously blotched with white or light-gray (Figure 1). In large individ- uals, the whitish blotches are obscured, and the body is uniformly blackish above, and lighter below. The whitish blotches apparently are retained until a fish reaches at least -i^) inches. Newman (1963) rei)orted upon a skilfish exhibited at the Vancouver (British Colum-i bia) Public Aquarium from July 1956 to September 1963, when it died. During this period, it grew in length from 12 to 35 inches, but; retained its pattern of white and light-gray marks for the entire 7 years. j.

LATENT RESOURCE Andriashev (1955) notes that the Soviet fisheries industry is in- terested in finding commercial concentrations of this large, fat fish, both in surface and bathypelagic waters of the northwestern Pacific area. Apparently, skilfish are not common on grounds traditionallj^;.
