Bibs are true bandits. With their feelers, they search for shrimp and crabs hiding in the bottom. They also go after small fish and shellfish. Young bibs live in large schools close to the coast. Older animals often swim between 10 and 300 meters deep, particularly above rocky bottoms and wrecks. Poor cod often swim along in the schools. Fishermen are not really interested in bib because the mellow meat spoils too quickly.
