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.

appeared on a 15-pfennig stamp of West Germany in 1964.
In the USA, the related blackbelly rosefish
, Helicolenus dactylopterus
