Rainbow Smelt, Osmerus mordax

 

A commonly transplanted fish, the rainbow smelt can be a boon or a nuisance, depending on what it replaces. Smelt have been blamed for destroying salmonid populations, but have also been known to provide an abundant and easily accessible forage base for predators. Humans harvest smelt by hook and line, seines, and dipnets. Smelt generally run at night, ascending rivers in huge schools.
