ABSTRACT
Minnow, a name applied to about 300 species of freshwater fish of North and Central America. In common usage, the term refers to any small, silvery fish, but properly it is limited to such fish as the carp, chub, dace, and shiner. Minnows are usually 3 to 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm) long and rarely exceed 18 inches (46 cm). Minnows have soft, barb-less fins; circular scales; and throat teeth rather than jaw teeth.
