Description: The golden shiner (Notemigonus crysoleucas) is a cyprinid fish native to eastern North America. In the wild, the golden shiner is usually between 3 and 5 inches long. Golden shiners prefer quiet waters and are therefore found in lakes, ponds, streams. They are sometimes found in the quietest parts of rivers. They like weedy areas. They are fairly tolerant of pollution, turbidity, and low oxygen content. Golden shiners are omnivorous. They eat zooplankton, insects, and algae. Females lay up to 200,000 sticky eggs each amid vegetation. There is no parental care.
