Info

(Linnaeus, 1758)

Distribution
Eastern Atlantic: British Isles to Cape Blanc, Mauritania; (exceptionally further south) Senegal and around the Canary Islands and Madeira. Common south of 40°N (Spain, North Africa) in the Mediterranean.

Biology
Inhabit hard bottoms (rock or rubble) down to 200 m depth. Usually found in shallow water less than 50 m deep.
Adults solitary; young gregarious.
Young fish caught with traps.
Feed on fish, mollusks and cephalopods.

Important food fish. Marketed fresh or frozen.
Some attempts to culture this species have been successful. Due to low market supply, the potential for selling these fish from aquaculture operations seems to be good.
A spear-fisherman cites a specimen caught in Greece (Corfu) with an overnight bottom-line about 1.60 m and 42 kg, but the identification cannot be verified.
