Details of this species in Great Lakes
Source: WDNR 2004
Species Notes for this Location:
The first report of white perch in the Great Lakes drainage was from Cross Lake, central New York, in 1950 (Dence 1952, in Fuller 2005). The species apparently gained access to the lake via movement through the Erie Barge Canal in the 1930s and 1950s (Lee et al. 1980, Johnson and Evans 1990, Mills et al. 1993, in Fuller 2005).
Management Notes for this Location:
Reduction in native biodiversity: Prolific competitors of native fish species, Morone americana are believed to have the potential to cause declines of Great Lakes walleye populations (WDNR, 2004).
