  • Description:
    Wreckfish Polyprion americanus is large bass distributed globally in temperate waters, including the U.S. South Atlantic (Heemstra 1986). They constitute a single genetic stock across the north Atlantic ocean (Sedberry et al. 1996). Significant catches are reported off Spain, Portugal, and the Blake Plateau of the U.S. South Atlantic (Sadovy 2003). Wreckfish are caught at depths ranging from 1,500‐2,400 feet over high relief and flat hard bottom habitat (Sedberry et al. 1999). Spawning occurs in late winter and early spring, and juveniles are pelagic to 20‐24 inches total length (TL), associating with floating seaweeds and wreckage.
