Sebastes inermis (Japanese red seaperch, dark-banded rockfish) 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 total length of 35 cm (14 in), and the heaviest recorded specimen weighed 800 g (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] The Japanese seaperches are twice as expensive as European seabass.[citation needed] Sometimes, the Japanese red seaperch is mixed up with Japanese black seaperch (Sebastes ventricosus) and Japanese seabass.
