Brief Summary

Read full entry
Redfish like cold, deep waters south of the North Pole. This species is fished on a large scale in that area. Every once in awhile, they are also caught in the northern North Sea. They can grow up to 1 meter long and eat fish (small cod species, herring). These fish are only really red in the dark and at great depths. In aquaria, they are much paler due to daylight.
