Brindle bass are found throughout the Indo-Pacific region. They occur in estuaries, underwater caves, rocky reefs and up to depths of 100m.
The brindle bass’s large size can be quite intimidating underwater. These fish can grow up to 2.7m in length and 300kg in weight. This is the same length, but almost one and a half times the weight of the largest shark in this exhibit.
Our brindle bass is called Buzz.
SASSI status: Red – It is illegal to buy or sell brindle bass! Rather choose a green-listed species.
