Boarfish in the Northeast Atlantic have recently been exploited commercially for fishmeal. It is a sexually dimorphic species with an estimated maximum age of 26 years, late age at maturity (A(50) = 5.25 years), relatively fast rate of growth (K = 0.186 year(-1)), and a small asymptotic length (L(infinity) = 128.9 mm).
