Striped bass, more commonly called ‘rockfish’ or ‘stripers,’ are perhaps the most iconic fish from the Mid-Atlantic States. Distinguished by the dark horizontal stripes on their silver bodies, rockfish can live up to 30 years and reach over five feet in length. They migrate up and down the East Coast, but most are born in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries and play an important role as a top predator in the Bay ecosystem. They are prized by recreational anglers and commercial fishermen alike.
If you are making a party this would make a great addition to your grand buffet!
The meat is hearty, mild, and delicious - great on the grill, sauteed or roasted.
