This 5-year study was done to determine the ecological relationships and compatibility of yellow perch and smallmouth bass sharing a water body. The research objectives were: 1) to measure zooplankton density and composition and relate that to food habits of adult yellow perch; and 2) to examine the dietary overlap between adult yellow perch and smallmouth bass. Zooplankton was sampled from May-September throughout 1977-81, and stomachs from angler-caught adult yellow perch and smallmouth bass were collected during the same months and years.
