A minnow is a small freshwater fish that belongs to various species and families. They are known for their small size, streamlined bodies, and silvery coloration. Minnows are often found in rivers, streams, and lakes, where they inhabit shallow areas with vegetation and rocks. They play an essential role in aquatic ecosystems, serving as a food source for larger fish and birds. Minnows are also popular bait fish for anglers, as they attract predatory fish due to their small size and lively movements. These resilient fish are adaptable and can tolerate a wide range of water conditions. While they may be small in size, minnows contribute significantly to the biodiversity and ecological balance of freshwater habitats.
