trade name since the late seventies I guess when they were the the hole so to come up the name also considered Pacific sea bass and the exotic and South American sea bass you can see he's getting

smooth them up yeah and it had day and moment while they like blue have the channel yet looks like it has like only the very slimy kind of student who has beady eyes fun fact though the go shark is
