Overview

Brief Summary

The species is highly esteemed as food. It is fished by deep-sea trawlers off N.W. Africa and along the Mediterranean coasts of Spain, France, Italy and Malta. It is also taken by Israel trawlers, but less commonly so than Aristaeomorpha foliacea, while in the Western Mediterranean the opposite is true.
The species is sold fresh.The total catch reported for this species to FAO for 1999 was 2 629 t. The countries with the largest catches were Tunisia (1 335 t) and Algeria (880 t).
