Artist Note: At times customers or anglers request us to use a reference photograph to paint by. If so our skilled artists will identify any unique characteristics in the photo which are later reflected in the completed paint scheme. This is why no two mounts are ever exactly alike and explains the differences you may see in the coloration of the various mounts. If you have a photo or description, please send it by email to email@example.com
Adult black rockfish have a mottled gray-black body often with dark stripes from the eye to the gill plate. These fish are characterized by having a bass-shaped body, a large mouth, and spinous dorsal fin. The spines are venomous and may cause pain or infection; however, are not extremely toxic. Black rockfish may be distinguished from similar species, such as dark and dusky rockfish, by the white belly and lack of pores or knob on the lower jaw. Adults may reach a maximum weight of 5 kg (11 lbs) and maximum length of 69 cm (27.6 in) with females reaching larger sizes than males. Newly settled black rockfish may be orange to dark brown in coloration, and older juveniles are mottled gray and black with a black spot on the posterior portion of the spinous dorsal fin
Black rockfish are an opportunistic predatory fish that typically feed in the water column on zooplankton, Dungeness crab larvae, and fish species, such as herring sand lance and Puget Sound rockfish. However, they may also feed on benthic species such as crustaceans and octopi.
Predators of young black rockfish include sablefish, Pacific halibut, other fish species, and pigeon guillemot. Black rockfish are more mobile than many other rockfish species. However, acoustic tagging studies performed in Oregon indicate they have a small home range of about 0.55 square km. Black rockfish may take trips outside their home range during the reproductive season or to take advantage of food available seasonally. Tagging studies performed in Alaska indicate an average distance of 4 km travelled from release to recovery location. In addition, acoustic tagging studies indicate that black rockfish perform vertical migrations, often with sunrise or sunset.
