About striped bass Edit

Suzuki (Japanese seabass) inhabit seashores and estuaries. Many Japanese cities have developed near these places since ancient times. Suzuki have shiny white flesh with an easily recognizable, broad-flaked structure and a mild flavor. They have traditionally been one of the most popular targets for Japanese anglers. In the Kanto area, including Shizuoka Prefecture, it is called seigo when under 25 cm. At three years of age, when it has attained a length of near 60 cm, it is called fukko or suzuki. Because their name changes as they grow, the Japanese have associated them with advancement in life and believe Japanese seabass are luck-bringer fish.

Eating sustainably Edit

The best choices for suzuki are farmed or wild-caught striped bass.

Mercury warning
Wild striped bass carries a warning to limit consumption due to concerns about mercury or other contaminants.
