Morone saxatillis x Morone chrysops
What is a Hybrid Striped Bass?
It is not a wild Striped Bass, aka “Rockfish” or “Striper”. A Hybrid Striped Bass is created by combining a female Striped Bass (Morone saxatilis) with a male White Bass (Morone chrysops). This union creates a more compact fish that captures the delicate texture and mild flavor of the wild Striped Bass. It is well suited for aquaculture and grows in convenient sizes for cooking whole or filleted.
