They are found in coastal waters of the north Pacific from Japan to California, where they live near the sea floor in deep water: the sablefish, Anoplopoma fimbria, has been found down to 1,830 m (6,000 ft). They are large fish, with the skilfish being up to 180 cm (5.9 ft) in length. They are commercially important fishes, and are often given the market name black cod.
