- n. Plural form of centrarchid.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Although Ocean Pond is one of Florida's most acidic lakes, it supports a sustained sport fishery for largemouth bass, black crappie, bluegill, and other centrarchids.
"It looks as if the variety of head shapes and sizes in centrarchids is strongly influenced by what they eat - primarily whether they eat other fish or not," said Collar.
More importantly, when they compared fish-feeders with species that eat other types of prey, the researchers found that bass and other centrarchids that feed primarily on fish have remained relatively unchanged over time.
