N°1 | The White Bass

The White Bass belongs to the Moronidae family. Its maximum length is 46 cm and its maximum weight is 3.2 kg. Its maximum lifespan is 15 years. Spawning takes place from March to May. The best time to catch it is from mid-April to mid-May. As with other true basses, the dorsal fin is clearly double, separated into thorny and soft-raked parts. White Bass is a silvery shade ranging from dark grey or black on the back to white on the belly. Several incomplete lines or stripes extend horizontally on either side of the body. Adults look like a young striped bass, and the two are often confused. However, the striped bass has two distinct pieces of teeth on the back of the tongue, and the white wolf has one piece of tooth. The striped bass has two points on each cap, unlike the white bass which has one, and the second spine of the anal fin measures about half of the third spine of the striped bass, while it is about two thirds the length of the third spine in White Bass.

Fishing period : mid-April to mid-may

Minimum size : 25 cm

N°2 | The Pallid Sturgeon

The Pallid Sturgeon belongs to the Acipenseridae family. it measures between 70 and 150 cm long and 39 kg in adulthood. The Pallid Sturgeon takes 15 years to reach maturity, and can live for more than a century. it breeds from May to July. Considered as endangered, it cannot be caught. Like the other Acipenseridae, it is considered as a "living fossil". The Pallid Sturgeon has a characteristic appearance that makes it to be qualified as "primitive" or "dinosaur". It has a pale color, especially in adults who fade with time, with a greyish back and sides. Its caudal fin is heterocercal, with an upper lobe more developed than the lower lobe. Like other sturgeons, the Pallid Sturgeon has no calcified scales or bones, unlike more recent fish species. It has a cartilaginous skeleton with five rows of thick patches that extend along its sides, belly, back and most of its head. These plates are covered by the skin and protect the animal. This cartilage also extends to the back of the fish’s body, between the dorsal fin and the tail. The mouth starts well set back from the tip of the head. Because it has no teeth, it uses this stretchy mouth to suck small fish, shellfish and other foods from the bottom of the river. Like all sturgeons, it has four barbells. We think they have a sensory role in detecting food.

There may be a throat mark under the lower jaw, ranging from yellow to gold.

Like other species in the Pacific, the anal fin has 12 to 20 rays, compared to a maximum of 12 in European species. The chum salmon has a silvery blue-green coloring with some indistinct spots in a darker shade and a rather paler belly. When they move in fresh water, their color changes to dark olive green and the belly color intensifies. When adults are about to spawn, they have purple streaks near the caudal peduncle, darker towards the tail. Breeding males generally develop an extended snout or kype, their lower fins turn white and their teeth are larger.

Contrary to its vernacular name, its mouth is rather large! Smallmouth bass has a long, rounded snout. The upper jaw does not extend beyond the upper edge of the eye. The anal fin has 3 strong spines. Both dorsal fins are slightly rounded and rather soft. They are linked and seem to form only one fin. The spines of the first dorsal fin are short and of almost the same length. The pelvic fins are joined by a membrane. The caudal fin is forked. The pectoral fins are transparent, all the others are opaque, dark or amber and decorated with black on the rays, spines or membranes. The back is darker and less golden than the sides. The flanks are marked with 8 to 15 thin vertical bars of dark appearance; this characteristic is more pronounced in juveniles. The belly of smallmouth bass is cream to milky in color.

Females have a lower keel. Well-developed filaments are made for zooplankton feeding. It has a long snout, a long rounded head that is ventrally compressed and a ventral mouth with a split lower lip. There is 12 to 15 rays on the dorsal fin and the anal fin has 7 rays. Pelvic and anal fins are longer in males. It has an almost straight lateral line with 68 to 87 scales.
