Catch Method: Hook and Line

Yellowtail rockfish are large fish with heavy bodies and large lips. They tend to be greenish or yellowish on their backs with one row of oval to rectangular pale blotches and pale underneath the lateral line. As the name suggests, these fish have light yellow-green fins. The single row of pale blotches distinguishes the yellowtail from kelp bass, which has multiple rows.

The yellowtail tends to group in rather loose schools, often associating with other kinds of rockfish. Commonly caught by long-liners, these hook and line fillets are prized for their mild flavor and gentle texture.
