Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The giant sea bass (Stereolepis gigas) is a fish native to the northern Pacific Ocean.[1] Despite its conspicuous size and curious nature, relatively little is known about its biology or behavior.There are published reports of giant sea bass reaching a size of 2.5 m (8.2 feet) and a weight of up to 255 kg (562 lbs). However in Charles F. Holder's book The Channels Islands published in 1910, the author claims specimens taken from the Gulf of California attained 800 pounds (360 kg). In the eastern Pacific its range is from Humboldt Bay, California to the Gulf of California, Mexico, most common from Point Conception southward. In the western Pacific it is found in the sea around Japan. It usually stays in relatively shallow water, near kelp forests, drop offs or rocky bottoms.show more
