The northern wolffish, commonly known as the blue catfish, is a bottom-dwelling fish found in cold, deep waters around rocky outcroppings. The northern wolffish, on the other hand, is thought to live a more pelagic existence than the spotted wolffish. It can be found at depths ranging from the surface to 1200 meters. The flesh has a distinct texture and higher moisture levels than most species on the market.
