I have read in the Fishes of Wisconsin, and some where else, that there was
or is a golden green sunfish strain. It says that it was developed in Texas
for stocking ponds for bass food. The reason is the bright color makes it a
easier prey item. I was wondering if anyone knew where to find this xanthic
strain of green sunfish. I would like to obtain some for my garden pond.
