Rod Cod are bottom dwelling sea fish of the genus Sebastes. These fish play an important part in the commercial and recreational fishing industry. The large red fish in the photo is the Yelloweye rock fish, also called Red Snapper. It is a species of concern because of overfishing on the Pacific West Coast. An estimated 7 to 13% of these slow-growing, large rock fish are thought to remain in the inshore waters. Some of these fish can live over one hundred years.
