Support Cabrillo Marine Aquarium's giant sea bass research, contributing to a great understanding of these critically endangered animals that were nearly fished to extinction!
Once plentiful along the Southern California coast, only 500 giant sea bass remain in local waters today. Fully grown, giant sea bass can reach the size of a Volkswagen Beetle and weigh more than 550 pounds. They are said to be as endangered as the Black Rhino.
In ground-breaking research and a first-of-its-kind conservation project, CMA's Aquatic Nursery Team, along with a host of incredible collaborators, successfully hatched and raised more than 400 baby giant sea bass. Many were successfully released into natural habitat with hopes to replenish the population.
The next research project involves implanting trackers into the juvenile giant sea bass and releasing them into the wild. We need your suuport to help fund giant sea bass research! We have learned so much about these endangered fish, but we're now at a stand-still! We need funding to implant the trackers and anaylize the invaluable data that will be produced.
Every donation amount helps! Please contribute today! All donations will receive information about the project as it progresses!
Your generous donation of $1,000 or more will ADOPT your own giant sea bass! We will send you photos of the individual and updates as they come in!
