Striped bass farms in the U.S. are well-managed.
Hybrid Striped Bass, Suzuki
Striped bass is known as suzuki when prepared for sushi.
Farmed striped bass is a hybrid of wild striped bass and white bass.
Striped bass are raised in ponds or tanks. In California, most are raised in tanks. Bass farms are usually located inland, so ocean pollution from discharge of wastewater is not a factor.
Since there are no wild hybrid striped bass, disease or escape is not a risk to wild populations.
We recommend farmed striped bass as a "Best Choice."
