Characteristic: Black Sea Bass - Centropristes striata - Can be found from Cape Cod to Florida and in the eastern parts of the Gulf of Mexico.  They are bottom dwellers and like to congregate around formations, like a pier or a natural reef area or outcropping of rocks.  Like most fish that live on the ocean floor, they can vary in color from smokey-gray to dusky-brown to a blue-black.  In contrast to the Striped Bass, the Sea Bass only lives in salt water.  They feed mainly on crabs, lobsters, shrimp and various other mollusks, but also on small fish and squid.
