Dominators of the World’s Lakes and Rivers

Freshwater fish are a diverse group of bony fish and are classified as living in freshwater areas like ponds, lakes, and rivers that have a salinity level of less than 1.05%. Although not as prevalent or colorful as saltwater fish, freshwater fish still make up nearly 41% of all fish with nearly 15,000 different species. Freshwater fish can survive in a wide variety of habitats depending on the species from the warm, flooding rivers of the Amazon rainforest to the frozen lakes of Northern Canada and are spread all across the globe.
