Red Drum, Copper Shoals

Copper Shoals Red Drum® is a marine red drum farm-raised in Texas. The marine red drum is commonly known as redfish or spottail sea bass. It is a game fish native to the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico and is found in coastal waters from Massachusetts to Tuxpan, Mexico. Red drum travel in shoals (schools) and are aggressive eaters, feeding on shrimp and small fish such as menhaden and mullet, at times in waters so shallow that their backs are exposed. Red drum is more copper than red. It’s most distinctive feature is one or more large black spots on the tail. The spot tricks predators into targeting the tail of the fish rather than the head, allowing the red drum the chance to get away.  The light, white meat of Copper Shoals Red Drum® tastes mild, not bland. It has a robust texture that adapts well to many cooking methods.
