Re: NANFA-- "Zebra Perch" What is it?

Has anyone contacted the Department of Bucket Biology at the DNR to see if
this was an introduction?

I wasn't too convinced by the comparative in Scott's pictures (thanks for
looking all those up Scott :) But there may have been a batch of something
that came out of a hatchery or something... It sounds like the lake Matt is
describing is pretty important to wildlife and sport... So my guess is the
population is stocked (which seems to be the case anywhere inland in Ohio).
I wouldn't be suprised if some gene had a little extra expression that
wasn't culled out at a hatchery.

Very interesting in any case. Thanks for getting some shots Mark! :)
