Morone Saxatilis: The Striped Bass

Around 2006 invasive Striped Bass took over and colonized the Carmel River Lagoon.  Not only do the striped bass prey on juvenile Steelhead, but outcompete them for food. Besides the threat striped bass pose to steelhead, they also negatively impact red-legged frogs, which are listed as a threatened species.
