Habitat Trouble for Bridle Shiner in Northeastern States

from the National Fish Habitat Partnership's 2015 Through a Fish's Eye Report


Aquatic vegetation is the key to Bridle Shiner (Notropis bifrenatus) survival. The loss of aquatic vegetation makes this species vulnerable to predation, often by piscivorous fishes. Land use practices that increase turbidity also affect this visual predator.
