The giant Black sea bass is native to the Pacific Ocean, they are known to reach weights over 500 pounds. Giant sea bass were once common in Southern California waters because of overfishing and the fact they reproduce slowly Black sea bass were almost wiped out.

On a recent trip to San Diego “Day at the Docks” I shot this picture of Juvenile black sea bass being raised by Hubb Sea World Research Institute.
