Eptatretus okinoseanus

The Eptatretus okinoseanus lives in the bathydemersal, non-migratory, marine, depth range 300 - 1020 m environment.

In contrast, LDH-A and B in Eptatretus okinoseanus were maintained 70% of their activities ever at 100 MPa. These results show that, the deeper the habitat, the higher the tolerance to the pressure. More
