Why are some animals (namely Bluegill, Bass, etc) not listed as introduced in parts of the US?

In New Jersey, where I live, Bluegill, Bass, Crappie, and other centrarchids/ other freshwater fish, despite being native to other areas in the US, aren’t native to NJ and other areas of the East Coast, and were introduced cause of sport fishing and all that. Yet on inat, they’re not listed as introduced.

iNat doesn’t always have that information already, but you can add it. See here for instructions.


ah, thanks
