In the North Sea, the butterfish is a common small (up to 25 centimeters) coastal fish, which likes to hide between the rocks (or basalt blocks from sea dikes) and in wrecks. Butterfish eat all kinds of small prey, such as shrimp, slaters, shellfish and worms. You can find clumps of yellow round eggs from the butterfish under stones lying low in the tidal zone.
