 Rose Fish
(Sebastes norvegicus)


 Distribution & Size

Rose Fish (Sebastes norvegicus), also known as the ocean perch, Norway haddock, red perch, golden redfish, or hemdurgan, is a species of rockfish from the North Atlantic. Misleadingly, it is sometimes called bergylt, bream, or snapper, though it is unrelated to all of these.  

 General Information

This fish lives off the North Atlantic coasts of Europe and North America. Adults are found off the coast at depths of 100 to 1,000 m (330 to 3,300 ft); juveniles may be found in coastal waters such as fjords. The adults are slow moving, gregarious fish, of some commercial importance. They reach 1 m (3 ft 3 in), though most only are about half that length. They are viviparous. While the young fish are of brownish color, the adults are bright red. In 2010, Greenpeace International added the rose fish to its seafood red list. "The Greenpeace International seafood red list is a list of fish that are commonly sold in supermarkets around the world, and which have a very high risk of being sourced from unsustainable fisheries.

 Tackle & Bait

Deep drop fishing with electric reels.

 Eating Qualities

Good. Are generally in the 1-2 lb. range and are found everywhere in deep water in the Keys. They are not big but they are excellent fish for eating with very white meat. They have a lot of sharp spines so do not handle them without gloves or a towel.
