Rough Eye Rockfish

Alternative Names: Canadian Rougheye

Monterey Bay Recommendation: No specific recommendation. These fish are somewhat overfished, as they are slow to reproduce. I recommend choosing other, more sustainable rockfish instead of this one.

Uses in Cooking: Can be pan fried, baked, broiled or grilled.

Similar Fish: Copper rockfish, ocean perch, red snapper

Description: Firm with medium flakes, similar to other rockfish.

Fun Facts: Lifespan of between 100 and 200 years, with the oldest known specimen estimated at 205 years old.
