The American conger lives in the demersal, oceanodromous, marine, depth range 1 - 477 m , usually 75 - 150 m environment.

American conger eggs have never been identified, for although eggs taken over the tilefish grounds 30 miles south of Nantucket lightship in July 1900 have been credited to this species, there is no certainty that this was their true parentage. More
