Dating all the way back to Colonial times and the first European settlers landing in the US, the striped bass has been an abundant source of food. It's most prevalent on the Atlantic coastline, and boasts the title of "State Fish" for three different states along the eastern seaboard. This swimmer also has the ability to move between fresh and salt water, and this print is a nice reminder to have over your mantelpiece or kitchen table to always keep exploring.
