It is reported to be a common fish in the rocky intertidal zone of Europe's coasts (Cohen . In a study published in 1996, that measured the relative densities of fishes on the southern and eastern coasts of England, the mean catch rate for the five-beard rockling was 0.106, 0.146 and 0.129 along the northeast, eastern and southern coasts, respectively (Rogers and Millner 1996).. Although this species prefers rocky bottoms, it is also known to frequent sandy, muddy or shell/gravel bottoms.
Before land reclamation and port construction started, boats could be tied up to the churchyard wall on the seaward side.
