WSB sighting form

Thread Status: Hello , There was no answer in this thread for more than 60 days.
It can take a long time to get an up-to-date response or contact with relevant users.
Are white sea bass populations in danger? I hope not. They are my favorite fish to eat...not to mention ecological impact. I had dreams of hunting them one day, as I have just started spearing up here in Alberta.
There's a successful breeding program going on down here in San Diego:
This season I've been seeing lots of wsb of all sizes around, some 12", probably just having been released. It's very exiting, I never even saw wsb ten years ago when I was here before.
I just wish they have the same program up here north. Maybe one of these days we would be hunting in the kelp rather than cursing the kelp.:p
There are pens they release them from in Carlsbad, I think. There are a couple more in Catalina Harbor. There's probably more around too. :p We can just wait for them to grow up.
