Drumfish (sciaenops ocellata)

A fish belonging to the sciaenidae family, that includes red mullet. It is most common in the Mediterranean, but specimens occur on both sides of the Atlantic, and in the east as far north as the English Channel. The Red Drum, also known as Channel Bass is the variety most likely to be found around British shores. It grows to a maximum of 1.5 metres, although 1 metre is a more common size, has good flesh, and should be treated as Sea Bass. See 'Sea Bass'
