Publications of The Blackbass in America and Overseas fills a long standing need for a comprehensive reference on the six recognized species of this remarkable group of warmwater fishes. Beginning with an intriguing history of the discovery of the Blackbasses in North America, the book proceeds to describe each of the species and provides illustrated keys whereby catches of juvenile or adult fish may be identified. Chapters devoted to each of the blackbass species include a review of their biology and life histories, native and world ranges, and present statues as sport fish in America and abroad. A chapter on the culture of the blackbasses includes not only a fascinating review of early propagation but offers an up-to-date account of present world aquacultural techniques. Ecological features affecting the welfare and geographical distribution of the various blackbasses are discussed in a chapter outlining relative habitat requirements and techniques for managing sport and food fisheries. A chapter pin-pointing fishing waters in the Americas, Eurasia and Africa is a novel guide to outstanding world angling waters. The concluding chapter provides a reference list of nearly 700 entries which may be invaluable to the reader wishing to acquire more detailed information on a particular species or fishing water. Supplemented by a number of maps and photographs world-wide in scope, the text contains a wealth of information written in style with the angler and biologist in mind.
