MuseumEdit

An information board in the aquarium will provide information about this fish.

"Bluegills have spikes on their dorsal fins o help protect them from enemies and harm. Their offspring actually have a fairly high survival rate when compared to other fish. The males chase away the females and take over protecting the eggs and babies in the nest. Although bluegills are small, they are actually related quite closely to black bass."

In real lifeEdit

The Bluegill is a species of freshwater fish sometimes referred to as bream, brim, or copper nose. They are native to the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, from coastal Virginia to Florida, west to Texas and northern Mexcio, and north from western Minnesota to western New York. Today they have been introduced into Europe, South Africa, Asia, South America, and Australia.

Bluegill live in shallow waters of many lakes and ponds, along with slow-moving streams and small rivers. They prefer areas with underwater plant-life, and like to hide in fallen logs or water weeds.

Young bluegills’ diet consist of rotifers and water fleas. Adults consume insect larvae (mayflies, caddisflies, dragonflies) but can also include crayfish, leeches, snails, and other small fish. If food is scarce, they will also feed on aquatic plants, or in more dire situation, resort to cannibalism and feed on their eggs and their young. Bluegill use gill rakers and bands of small teeth to ingest their food. During summer, they generally consume 35% of their body weight each week. To capture prey, they use a suction system to accelerate water into their mouth.
