This book synthesizes current scientific and management studies for centrarchids in rivers and streams, and is a must-read for natural resource professionals as well as stream fishing enthusiasts. Readers will benefit from the diverse array of topics addressed by studies of six species in 11 states. The latest information provided on native species conservation and restoration, unique lineages, species interactions and distribution, life history, habitat use, and population demographics will be useful to a variety of resource professionals. Stream fisheries managers will especially benefit from chapters that evaluate angler exploitation, stocking, fish removals, dam removal, forage addition, and harvest regulations.
The book provides a comprehensive resource for anyone interested in expanding their understanding of centrarchid fisheries in rivers and streams.
