For Up Weekly Updates:
The golden shiner can be found throughout most of the US. Much like the fathead minnow, the golden shiner exhibits abundant reproduction. Unfortunately, this species is slightly less tolerant of extreme environmental conditions.
These fish can be found in large schools around submerged structures where they primarily feed on zooplankton. The golden shiner spawns several times throughout spring and summer.
Spawning can be aided with the use of structures such as sunken evergreens or stacked pallets. The abundant reproduction of this fish makes it an excellent choice for stocking where predatory species are present.
These fish are significantly larger than fathead minnows (up to 11") and are preferred by large predator fish.
