The rose fish (Sebastes marinus, or Sebastes norvegicus), is also known as the ocean perch, Norway haddock, red perch, redfish, or hemdurgan; it is sometimes mistakenly called bergylt, bream, or snapper.
This food fish lives off the North Atlantic coasts of Europe and North America. Adults are found off the coast at depths of 100 to 1000 metres; juveniles may be found in coastal waters such as fiords. The adults are slow moving, gregarious fish, of some commercial importance. They are viviparous. While the young fish are of brownish color, the adults are bright red.
