The Moronidae, the temperate basses, are a family of perciform fishes consisting of at least six freshwater, brackish water, and marine species. The members of this family are most commonly found near the coastal regions of eastern North America (including the Gulf of Mexico), northern Africa and Europe. The family includes the genera Morone and Dicentrarchus.
They are highly prized as sport fish.
