Bluegill

BLUEGILL

These North American native bluegill can tolerate a wide range of temperature and salinity and can be found in almost any shallow fresh water from Canada to Mexico. Adult bluegill can weigh between 3-5 pounds and up to 12 inches long and will make a food source out of any insect, fish, or plant small enough for them to eat.  Their small size and prolific spawning rates make them an important food source for largemouth bass and other bigger fish.  

The traits that make them valuable in their native habitats have made them pests in other environments they have been introduced to and are considered invasive species in, throughout Europe, Asia, and South Africa.
