Abstract:
Habitat use of larval, juvenile and adult shoal bass (Micropterus cataractae) was monitored in Little Uchee Creek (Chattahoochee River drainage), Alabama in 2005 and 2006. Larvae and juveniles used different habitats than adults and each other. All groups used habitat that differed from what was generally available. Adult shoal bass used different habitat in 2005 when water levels were relatively greater that in 2006. During low water level periods adults moved into pool mesohabitat, emphasizing the importance of habitat connectivity for the persistence of this species.
