Atlantic wreckfish

Wrackbarsch

Did you know...?

  • Most people wonder why the atlantic wreckfish is actually called wreckfish. It doesn't owe its name to its looks. It got its name because it likes to hide in shipwrecks.
  • The fish are loners and live in the rocky seabed. They are very robust and can weigh up to 45 kg.
  • The population size of the wreckfish is largely unknown, which is why no assessment of the threat to them can be made.
