Striped bass, often called Stripers, can live in both salt and fresh water. After spawning in freshwater rivers, they will spend most of their lives in the ocean near the coast.
They prefer water temperatures from 55° to 65° and actually migrate each year to remain in the colder water.
Striped bass are grown in many aquaculture operations in the United States. More than half of all these fish that are sold are actually grown.
