Bergylt (Sebastes norvegicus), a Scorpaenoid fish, somewhat resembling a perch in appearance, found in all northern seas as far west as Newfoundland, occasionally visiting the northern coasts of Britain. It is about two feet long, deep red on the back, lighter on the sides, passing into light flesh-colour on the under surface. It is sometimes called the Norway Haddock. There are about twenty other species of the genus, principally from seas of the north temperate zone.
