Morone chrysops x M. saxatilis
Sunshine bass, white bass, hybrid striped bass
Striped bass is a mild fish with a delicate, slightly sweet flavor that appeals to a wider range of consumers than traditional, wild-run striped bass, which has a more pronounced taste and a coarser texture. The raw meat is translucent white with a pinkish cast; it turns opaque white when cooked. It is moderately firm but flaky, and the oil content keeps it moist during cooking.
Most hybrid striped bass are raised in oxygen-ated tanks or ponds, where strict control of water quality and feed ensures consistent flavor.
