Wikipedia Abstract

Pagothenia borchgrevinki, the bald notothen, is a species of cod icefish native to the Southern Ocean where it is found in the Weddell Sea, the Ross Sea, the Davis Sea, in Vincennes Bay, and around the Budd Coast, the Antarctic Peninsula, South Orkneys and South Shetland Islands. It can be found at depths of from the surface to 550 metres (1,800 ft) though it is much rarer below 30 metres (98 ft).
