Remarks Generally, blue eye remain close to the sea bed during the day and move up in the water column at night, following concentrations of food (Ref. 6390). The fish are found over rough ground and at the edges of canyons and steep drop-offs. Blue eye appear to prefer cold water as part of their general behaviour (Ref. 6390). Juveniles inhabit surface waters, sometimes in association with floating debris (Ref. 6390). Fish move to the deeper demersal habitat at about 2 years of age when 47-50 cm long (Ref. 7128).
