Cobia escape pens, heading north to So Cal waters
« on: March 17, 2016, 12:12:10 PM »
“You might expect to see cobia as summer migrants like yellowtail, “They seem to be able to compete well with other fish in the vicinity and are generalists as far as what they feed on. Here, they would be in competition with yellowtail, bonito or even with reef fishes like kelp bass.”
To be sure, Southern California anglers will be delighted to catch cobia. But from a fisheries standpoint, their arrival will signal cause for concern."

Say what you want but using net pens in open water is just stupid!
