Abstract.--In an effort to aid in the conservation of black basses, the relative abundance, growth,
and mortality of Suwannee bass Micropterus notius and largemouth bass M. salmoides were es-
timated from four Florida rivers. Fish were collected by electrofishing in the four rivers during
2001 and 2002. Electrofishing catch per unit effort of Suwannee bass was highest in the Wacissa
River (95.1 fish/h), intermediate in the Santa Fe River (22.6 fish/h), and lowest in the Withlacoochee
(5 fish/h) and Ochlockonee rivers (1.9 fish/h). Catch per unit effort for largemouth bass was also
highest in the Wacissa River (50 fish/h), intermediate in the Santa Fe (19.8 fish/h) and Ochlockonee
