Giant Sea Bass
The body of the adult giant sea bass is elongate, with dorsal spines that fit into a groove on the back. The head is robust, and mouth is large with teeth in the back. Giant sea bass are usually reddish brown to dark brown in color on all but their stomachs and, at times, many have dark spots on their sides. Perch-like in appearance, juvenile giant sea bass differ radically from adults and are often mistaken for a different fish.
Japanese Sea Bass
It is a luck-bringer fish in Japan. "SUZUKI" inhabits near the seashores and in estuaries. Many of Japanese cities have developed near these places since ancient times. They have been one of the most popular targets in Japan from old days. For their name changes as growing, Japanese have associated it with advancement in life and have believed that Seabass is a luck-bringer fish.
Had any Patagonian toothfish lately?
Chances are most people would say no. But call it by its common market name, Chilean sea bass, and the answer might be different. Chilean sea bass (Dissostichus eleginoides), a large, vaguely cod-shaped fish, is a deep-water species caught in southern ocean waters near and around Antarctica that can live up to 50 years and grow to weigh over 200 pounds. It has been one of the most phenomenally successful introductions of a fish into the North American market in our time, under the name of Chilean sea bass, although it is really not a bass and it is not always caught in Chilean waters. Because of its white meat appeal, Chilean sea bass usually fetches premium prices in specialty markets and high-end restaurants. Try a Paila marina, a delectable shellfish stew available throughout the country.
