Eastern Silvery Minnow

Eastern Silvery Minnow

Hybognathus regis

Eastern Silvery Minnow inhabits mid-sized streams and large lakes at lower elevations. It is native to all watersheds except Allegheny, Erie, Raquette, Newark Bay and Long Island. Its range seems unchanged in some of the larger waters to the north and east although its range seems to have generally declined in central New York.
