The opercles have 2 flat spines; preopercle with large, forward-directed spines on its lower margin. They have small scales; lateral line complete with 62 to 74 scales mode 70 , but not extending onto caudal fin. In the wild, adult seabass inhabit coastal waters down to about m depth but are more common in shallow waters.
They are euryhaline and eurythermal and are found in the littoral zone on various kinds of bottoms in estuaries, lagoons and occasionally rivers. They enter coastal waters and river mouths in summer, but migrate offshore in colder weather and occur in deep water during winter in the northern range. Young fish form schools, but adults are less gregarious.
They are known to attain more than 70 cm in length and a body weight of 6 kg Figure 2.
In the wild, sexual maturity of males is attained between 2 to 4 years in the Mediterranean and between 4 to 7 years in the Atlantic 30 to 40 cm length ; females reach sexual maturity at between 5 and 8 years of age cm length. Previous Figure Next Figure. Email or Customer ID. Forgot password?
