Wildlife Wednesday – The Central Stoneroller Minnow



Rocking out over our Wildlife Wednesday! Did you know that Ohio has a fish that literally rolls rocks? 
Central stoneroller minnows are one of the most common species of stream fish in Ohio. They are about 3-5” long (7” max.) and the males are generally larger than females.
They get their common name from their habit of rolling stones along the bottom of the stream to dig spawning pits, which the males aggressively defend and the females visit to deposit their eggs.
