The sea bass is a warm-water species found south of the British Isles. In the summer, sea basses make foraging migrations into the southern parts of the North Sea. This species lives in salty and brackish waters and occasionally penetrates rivers. It has a life span up to 25 years, grows to a length of 1 meter and a weight of 10 kilograms. It feeds on shrimp, molluscs and small fish. Sea basses are a highly desired catch for fishermen due to the high prices they receive.
