Biological articles about so-called black basses, viz., the largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides and smallmouth bass M dolomieu, were compiled in a bibliography. Black basses are typical invasive alien fishes transplanted from North America, and constitute a serious biohazard in Japanese freshwaters. The bibliography lists approximately 500 articles including scientific papers, reports, and other miscellaneous printed materials, which are classified into seventeen specifically ordered subjects both in English and Japanese. This bibliography aims to provide necessary information to the persons such as scientists, conervation officers, and volunteers concerned about the bass problem, to help them to understand it the problem objectively, and to promote the eradication or control of alien basses in Japan.
