Warrior Bass (Micropterus warriorensis)

Description: 

As the common name suggests, the Warrior Bass has a patchy distribution in the Black Warrior River system of the Mobile Basin in west-central Alabama. The Warrior Bass is found in small, upland streams with in-stream cover. This species was recently described out of the Micropterus coosae (Redeye Bass) complex. As with other members of this complex, Warrior Basses have dusky bars or blotches along their sides and a red eye.
