Not-Yet Giant Black Sea Bass

Tully Rohrer

August 13th, 2010

This charismatic fish is making a comeback in the waters around Catalina after being driven almost to extinction by fishing pressure. It is now protected, and we’ve seen a few juveniles in the last few years, and many adults. I finally got a good picture this week of an adult, which I will post tomorrow, and that photo will show you how impressively large this little guy will grow. For scale, this little fella was about three inches long. Note the awesomely large black pelvic fins under him…

i’m definitely looking forward to how big this one can get.. and nice catch btw.. ;)
