It produces antifreeze glycoprotein that allows it to live in the frigid waters off the coast of Antarctica. Its distribution range is generally below 65 degrees South. It is mainly caught in the Ross Sea in the austral summer but has also been recorded south of the Indian Ocean region, in the vicinity of the Antarctic peninsula, and near the South Sandwich Islands. Despite...
