CommentsOnly location on Lake Superior. Doug Jensen wrote 2/13/2017 - As you may know, white bass have periodically been found in the St Louis River Estuary (1975-1986) and they have recently been found again (2014-2016?) including YOY. This raises several questions on whether we should consider them as non-native or invasive here, native to the basin, and also attribution to pathway(s)?
