MSC Golden Redfish (Perch)
The golden redfish is a deep sea species of rockfish from the North Atlantic. It is a large, slow-growing, late-maturing fish. Adults are found off the coast at depths of 100 to 1,000 m (330 to 3,280 ft); juveniles may be found in coastal waters such as fjords. The adults are slow-moving, gregarious fish, of some commercial importance. They can reach 1 m (3 ft 3 in), though most only are about half that length. They are viviparous. Individuals live up to 75 years and enter reproduction rather late. While the young fish are of brownish color, the adults are bright red.
