A type of rockfish found along the North Atlantic coasts of North America and Europe. Their coloring is a bright orange-red and they can weigh up to 5 pounds but are most often 1 1/2 to 2 pounds when caught for market. Its flesh has a mild sweet flavor and medium firm texture. The larger Ocean Perch have a coarser texture. Generally ocean perch are quite tender and can be used in any recipe that calls for a white fleshed fish. Ocean Perch is also referred to as Rosefish or Redfish. It should not be confused with the Redfish found in the Gulf of Mexico, which are a member of the drum family.

To check the fish for doneness, use the tip of a sharp knife and cut through the thickest part of the fillet. If the fish has been properly cooked, the meat will appear opaque but will still be moist.
