The copper rockfish is found in the eastern Pacific from the Gulf of Alaska to central Baja California, Mexico. It occurs in coastal waters, including shallow protected bays and inlets, among rocks and kelp beds, as well as around pilings and jetties. This species also is encountered in offshore areas to depths of about 600 feet.
The copper rockfish is viviparous like other species in the genus, Sebastes. The female gives birth to planktonic larvae. Spawning takes place between February and May.
The copper rockfish is one of the many species of rockfish in the Cold Water Quest gallery.
