Oh, I'm glad to hear he's still swimming about! Thanks for being understanding on this issue, I don't think you need to take this down as I'm quite happy that you were being respectful and returned him to his home afterwards :) And it gives an interesting opportunity to admire the beautiful pattern of the spotted sand bass!
Hey Laura. No this was a catch and release, our little buddy is still swimming around somewhere in southern California. I understand the concern though do you think I should take it down anyway as to not irritate anyone? Thanks cheers.
Hi there, on Project Noah we'd prefer not to have "trophy" pictures of animals. Can I ask if you put this fish back in the water after you took the photo? If not, and/or the fish is dead in this photo, we'd rather you took it down as it doesn't fit the ethos of the website, I hope you understand :) The ID for this fish is the spotted sand bass, Paralabrax maculatofasciatus, if you are interested to know (http://www.fishbase.us/summary/Paralabra...).
