Food and habitat partitioning between rock bass (Ambloplites rupestris) and smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomievi) young of the year.
Facey, Blazer, Gasper, and Turcotte (2005) compared HSI values in rock bass, Ambloplites rupestris (Rafinesque, 1817) before and after improvements in sewage treatment and found significantly (p < 0.05) lower values after the treatment, suggesting that physiological stress in fish population decreased with reduction in exposure to pollutants.
Based on videographic observations they actively avoided predation by Smallmouth Bass (Micropterus dolomieu), and were associated with Rock Bass (Ambloplites rupestris), Pumpkinseed (Lepomis gibbosus), and Common Shiners (Luxilus comutus).
Minnow traps caught several species of fish, including Rock Bass (Ambloplites rupestris), Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus), and Largemouth Bass (Micropterus salmoides).
All other species were uncommon to rare (< 1% of total catch), including common carp (Cyprinus carpio), rock bass (Ambloplites rupestris), northern pike (Esox lucius), logperch (Percina caprodes), and smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieui).

Evidence of immunological responses by a host fish (Ambloplites rupestris) and two non-host fishes (Cyprinus carpio and Carassius auratus) to glochidia of a freshwater mussel (Villosa iris).
Other centrarchids inhabiting these water bodies are bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus), rock bass (Ambloplites rupestris), and black crappie (Poxomis nigromaculatus) in BL, and rock bass in VN.
To test for potential predator effects on assemblage structure, we also compared the results of the cluster analysis to the seasonal distribution of potential predators in the site (i.e., Oncorhynchus mykiss [is greater than or equal to] 20 cm standard length [SL], and Ambloplites rupestris and Semotilus atromaculatus [is greater than or equal to] 15 cm SL).
