White bass; Introduced organisms; Superior, Lake


On August 18, 1975, a young-of-the-year white bass, Morone chrysops was beach seined from Lake Superior at Marquette, Michigan. This is the first reported occurrence of the species in Lake Superior or its tributaries since an unverifiable sighting about 1880. Most likely the species has been recently introduced or has migrated through the St. Mary's River from Lake Huron or Lake Michigan.
