From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki

Somebody suggested to merge this page with Black Bass. I believe that Large Bass should be the one that's merged with Black Bass because according to the species name, large bass and black bass are the same (unless it's a copy/paste error). Meanwhile, bass and black bass have different scientific names. So, I don't think the move request template should be here. But, black bass has its own description for its catch (in Animal Crossing) while large bass (which is exclusive to Animal Crossing) doesn't have this information. I think somebody should clarify this. Otherwise, bass and black bass are two different fish, so that means two different pages.

Starting in Animal Crossing: Wild World the Small Bass, Bass, and Large Bass were removed from the game and replaced with the Black Bass. The species name is irrelevant because that data is conjecture and not compiled from an official source. While the fish in Animal Crossing are clearly meant to refer to and mirror their real world counterparts, it's impossible to know for certain which species of fish they were meant to represent. I think the pages should remain separate as they are considered different fish for collection/cataloging purposes. I'm going to remove the merge request now, unless there are any objections.
