Trout-perch Family



Trout-perch (Percopsis omiscomaycus)

This family includes only two species in North America, only one of which is found in New York. As the family name suggests, these fish share characteristics of members of the salmon family and perches, such as an adipose fin and rough ("ctenoid") scales.
