Some problems exist with this species' status or catch methods, or information is insufficient for evaluating. Seabass, White – U.S., Gillnet

White Seabass are found along the U.S. Pacific coast, growing over 1.5 m in length and 40 kg in weight. They grow at a moderate rate, may live for 25 years, and can produce millions of eggs each year.

The U.S. commercial fishery for White Seabass occurs in Californian waters, where abundance of White Seabass is at a medium level.

Most fish are caught using drift and set gillnets, which incidentally catch marine mammals and sharks.
