there is a typo in the title it should say.... What is the scientific name of Striped Bass?
What do you know them by? I was told morone saxatilis years ago by a marine biologist but it appears that there is also a roccus saxatilis does anyone know if there a difference in the two or does the striped bass just have two scientific names? look for yourself....Roccus Saxatalis and Morone Saxatilis

The genus "Roccus" hasn't been used for decades, since it was replaced by "Morone". Some of the old salts, and rusty crusties, still use "Roccus" but it's just nostalgia. You won't find anything in the scientific journals under "Roccus".
