Scaled collection of drawings of Black Crappie in front and side poses

The Black Crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus) is also called moonfish, Crappie, grass bass, and strawberry bass. It is primarily a recreational fish that love to feed in the wee hours of the morning in schools. It loves swimming around sheltered areas with a prevalent food source and away from predation by enemies.

The Black Crappie are members of the family Centrarchidae, native to freshwater lakes, reservoirs, and rivers of North America. The fish is identified by its gills covering having spines, a deeper body lacking distinct vertical bars but with irregular black blotches and a dorsal fin with 7 to 8 spines that differentiate it from the White Crappie.

Black Crappies have a total length between 4”-11” (10-28 cm), body height of 1.5”-3.75” (3.8-9.5 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 3-4 lb (1.4-1.8 kg). The typical lifespan of the Black Crappie is 7-15 years.

Freshwater fish are fish that spend some or all of their live in water with a salinity level lower than .05%. Freshwater fish, due to the segmented nature of ponds, lakes, and rivers, are subject to speciation similar to species on islands.
