This fish appartains at the Centrarchidae Family. Originally confined primarily to the eastern United States of American and portions of northern Mexico and southern Canada, this member of the sunfish family can be found in every state in the U.S., throughout Mexico and Central America, and in many other countries throughout the world.
They are the most popular freshwater game fish. Much of its popularity is due to its pugnacious attitude and willingness to strike a lure or bait with explosive force.
