Black Seabass

Black Seabass

$29.00 /lb

Also commonly referred to as a “Knob Head”  due to the Jumbo sized males having a large hump on the top of their heads. Black Sea Bass has a mild, fresh, somewhat delicate flavor and a tender but firm texture. The meat is sparkling white and translucent. The firm, lean meat cooks up snow white. Black Seabass will be available from fall until spring. It is a fish that we target once diving slows down.

Black Seabass have an even pattern of white diamonds along their dark sides, the sides are generally smoky gray or bluish black. As juveniles they utilize nearshore waters. Then, they move to deeper water as the water cools and they mature. Black Sea Bass can be found around artificial reefs, rough bottoms, wrecks, piers, pilings, rocks, and jetties. They feed on mussels, clams, oysters, barnacles, crabs, shrimp, and small fish. This is an extremely easy fish to catch but its the most expensive fish we target due to heavy state and federal regulations.

For the whole fish option we try to get as close to 1lb as possible(Ranging in weight of 14oz. to 1.5lbs and about 11-15 inches in length after gutting, scaling and trimming). Whole fish come with the gills removed.

The current dry aged fish are in the 2.75-3.5lb range and are considered Jumbo sized black seabass. They are fully dressed and sold as whole fish but can be broken down at the customer’s request.

*When placing orders of only whole fish(not dry aged or filets) there is a 2 fish minimum requirement in order to qualify for free delivery.*
