Bass, Black Sea – U.S. Atlantic, Hook and line
Black Sea Bass are caught among rocky structures by both recreational and commercial fishers. They begin life as females and become males by the time they’re five years old.
Black Sea Bass populations were once depleted, but because of good management have now recovered to healthy abundances.
Hook and line fishing has low impacts on seafloor habitats and typically low bycatch. We are currently updating this seafood rating.
