Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Inhabits lakes, ponds and pools of small to large rivers (Ref. 5723, 86798). Occurs at depths <14 m (Ref. 120827). Juveniles feed on small invertebrates such as cladocerans, copepods, and midge larvae. Adults are piscivorous, consuming shad, silversides, and occasional young sunfish (Ref. 10294). Spawns near the surface (Ref. 120818).
