The white sea bass is not really a bass. It is actually the largest member of the saltwater drum or croaker family. They are capable of making a noise by vibrating their bladder therefore they have been given the family name. It is mostly found on the west coast in California waters. They are found as far north as Alaska when the waters are warm. It is a schooling fish important to both sport and commercial fishing because of it’s large size and good taste. Closely resembling the Atlantic weakfish, the white sea bass has an elongated body with a steel blue back. It has dark speckles on the sides that fade into a silver belly. A couple of names under which they can be found are Corvina or king croaker. They can grow to as much as 83 pounds and 5 feet in length.
