Sebastes inermis (Japanese red rockfish, Japanese red sea perch) is a species of rockfish native to the northwestern Pacific Ocean where it occurs off the coasts of Japan and the Korean Peninsula. This species grows to a length of 35 centimetres (14 in) TL and the heaviest recorded specimen weighed 800 grams (1.8 lb). This fish is important to both commercial fisheries and the sport fishing industry. It is also raised to supply market demand.[1]

Fishing[edit]

Baits for this perch include minnows, or lugworms, and ragworms, shrimps, and artificial lures. The tackle needed is fine but strong. Artificial lures are also effective, particularly for the medium-sized perch.
