Crepuscular, Nocturnal Phenology Comments: Check this box to expand all report sections: Bigmouth sleepers are harvested by anglers in parts of their range, while in Florida hydrological changes, habitat loss, and reduced waterquality have reduced the species’ already small geographical distribution,necessitating conservation measures.
This research was initiated to evaluate the likelihood of each, and to learn more broadly about bigmouth sleeperecology. Competition in Tropical Stream Fishes: Crepuscular, Nocturnal Immature Phenology: In Carite Reservoir, abundance and size data indicate that habitat is suitablehabitat for bigmouth sleepers, and the presence of a diversity of size classes ofsleepers suggests that either in-reservoir reproduction or significant recruitmentto the reservoir from an outside source is occurring.
