White Sea Bass, Atractoscion nobilis, is not technically a sea bass, but actually the largest member of the Croaker family in the Pacific Ocean (up to 5 feet and 80lbs). It feeds midway up the water column on bait fish, squid and pelagic crabs. It can be found from Magdalena Bay, Baja California, to Juneau, Alaska. They usually travel in schools over deep rocky bottoms (0-122 m) and in and out of kelp beds. It has an elongated body, large mouth, and a raised ridge along the length of its belly. It is grey-blue to copper on its back, with dark specks on its sides and a silver belly. It has a black spot on the inner base of its pectoral fins. Young white seabass have dark bars on the side. White Sea Bass has firm texture with mild and slightly sweet taste.
