The Yellow perch: Green Bay’s prized table fare

The yellow perch has an elongate, laterally compressed body with a subterminal mouth and a relatively long but blunt snout which is surpassed in length by the lower jaw. Yellow perch has many fine teeth. Their bodies are rough to the touch because of their ctenoid scales like most perches, the yellow perch has two separate dorsal fins. The anterior, or first, dorsal fin contains 12–14 spines while the second has 2–3 spines in its anterior followed by 12–13 soft rays. The anal fin has 2 spines and 7–8 soft rays. The opercula tips are spined, and the anal fin has two spines. The pelvic fins are close together, and the homocercal caudal fin is forked. Seven or eight branchiostegal rays are seen. The upper part of the head and body varies in color from bright green through to olive or golden brown. The color on the upper body extends onto the flanks where it creates a pattern of 6–8 vertical bars over a background of yellow or yellowish green. They normally show a blackish blotch on the membrane of the first dorsal fin between the rearmost 3 or 4 spines. The color of the dorsal and caudal fins varies from yellow to green while the anal and pelvic fins may be yellow through to silvery white; in spawning season, males develop pronounced red or yellow color on their lower fins. The pectoral fins are transparent and amber in color. The ventral part of the body is white or yellow. The juvenile fish are paler and can have an almost whitish background color. The maximum recorded total length (20 inches)—although they are more commonly around (7.5 in)—and the weights ranging from .25 – 1.9 lbs.
