The Red seabream lives in the demersal, oceanodromous, marine, depth range 10 - 200 m environment.

Lee, a sushi chef for 25 years, lists red seabream on his menu, but it was also verbally described as Japanese snapper by staff. Eating seabream vs. tilapia is like the difference between driving a Ferrari and a Volkswagen, he says. More

restaurants don't sell red seabream because it is simply too expensive, and the ones that substitute tilapia don't list it on the menu because it is farmed, frozen and unacceptable. More
