Among these species, the spotted sand bass
Paralabrax maculatofasciatus is considered an essential component in local fisheries, reaching a maximum total length (TL) of 60 cm, and its value in the Mexican market has increased in recent years due to its white and tasty meat.
Some studies in gilthead seabream (Santinha et al., 1996), European seabass, Dicentrarchus labrax (Peres and Oliva-Teles, 1999), spotted sand bass
(Alvarez-Gonzalez et al., 2001) and Japanese seabass, Lateolabrax japonicus, Cuvier (Ai et al., 2004) have estimated 40% to 55% as the optimal dietary protein level in terms of growth performance.
They have been documented to feed on rays, guitarfish, skates, flatfish, small sharks, barred sand bass
, kelp bass, blacksmith, ocean whitefish, sargo, sheephead, octopus, spiny lobster, cephalopods and squid (Domeier 2001, Love 2011).

The average Oklahoma angler keeps maybe one spinning rod under the deck, for the days when bass fishing gets tough and the sand bass
The marine species in the aquarium--such as the barred sand bass
, the California halibut, the red sea urchin, and the green abalone--are representative of a diverse and healthy indigenous marine environment and most of them are of economic or recreational fishing significance.

Spotted sand bass
Paralabrax maculatofasciatus (Steindachner, 1868), is a protogynous hermaphrodite species (Lluch-Cota, 1995) with a reasonable potential for culture on the northwest coast of Mexico due to its apparently suitable characteristics for aquaculture (Alvarez-Gonzalez et al., 2001), including its adaptability to environmental changes, low territoriality and potential for induced spawning under controlled laboratory conditions, all factors which allow for the mass production of juveniles almost all year (Aviles-Quevedo et al., 1995; Rosales-Velazquez, 1997; Martinez-Brown, 2007).
48 A COMPARISON OF ORGANIC POLLUTANTS IN PARALABRAX NEBULIFER (BARRED SAND BASS
) FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
Barred sand bass
(commonly, sand bass
), Paralabrax nebulifer, is part of the largest recreational fishery in Southern California as well as a large artisanal fishery in Mexico.
The purpose of this study was to examine aspects of the early life history of spotted sand bass
and barred sand bass
by using daily growth ring and settlement check analysis of young-of-the-year (YOY) specimens.
