Examples of "nocomis"
Nocomis platyrhynchus, the big mouth chub, is a species of fish native to West Virginia.
The genus name "Nocomis" comes from the Native American name for "grandmother".
The redtail chub ("Nocomis effusus") is a freshwater fish found in the U.S. states of Tennessee and Kentucky.
Nocomis is a genus of cyprinid fish native to North America. There are currently seven described species in this genus.
The redlip shiner breeds at 53 to 62 °F (11.6 to 16.6 °C). Males will aggregate over nests of "Nocomis leptochephalus".The female initiates spawning by swimming over a nest until she is pursued. The nest is built in small pits and once the the male drives the female to the nest, clasping occurs. Near these functional nests are artificial nests that are not used by the fish. This suggests that the presence of live "Nocomis" "leptocephalus" is attractive to N. chiliticus. This behavior towards "Nocomis" has also been observed in other species of "Notropis". Redlip shiners reach maturity in 1 to 2 years and spawn around the month of May.
The river chub ("Nocomis micropogon") is a minnow in the family Cyprinidae. It is one of the most common fishes in North American streams.
Etymology: Nocomis: An Indian (North America) name used by Charles Girard; ojibwe, nokomiss = grandmother. Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Cypriniformes (Carps) > Cyprinidae (Minnows or carps) > Leuciscinae.
The chub reproduces through spawning. Spawning occurs in gravel spawning mounds created by male "Nocomis platyrhynchus". The mounds tend to be located in areas with small to large-sized gravel and with medium water speeds.
The hornyhead chub, "Nocomis biguttatus", is a small species of minnow in the Cypriniformes Order (Cyprinidae family). It mainly inhabits small rivers and streams of the northern central USA, up into Canada. The adults inhabit faster, rocky pools of rivers.
The highback chub is a freshwater fish of the United States. It can be found in clear to turbid water in creeks and small to medium rivers with sandy or rocky bottoms. It appears to spawn on the nests of the bluehead chub (Nocomis leptocephalus).
"Nocomis platyrhynchus" has a body length that averages 15.2 centimeters and can reach up to 21.4 centimeters. The chub has an elongated body that is nearly circular in cross section. It has a triangular head and a pointy snout. The mouth of the chub is medium-sized and has a barbell on each side.
"Nocomis platyrhynchus" is ranked as being of least concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The fish is not seen as at risk for extinction due to its large and stable population size, large habitat range and a lack of wide-scale threats to its survival.
Luico Hopper (pronounced "Lou-é-co") was born on September 5, 1952 in Bassett, Virginia as one of seven children to Nocomis Huddleston and Fitchue Hopper. Hopper was first introduced to music at an early age by his father who was an accomplished self-taught musician who often played the acoustic guitar after long days of working the land on their Virginia farm.
Several fish species act as hosts for the glochidia of this mussel, including the central stoneroller ("Campostoma anomalum"), river chub ("Nocomis micropogon"), common shiner ("Luxilus cornutus"), whitetail shiner ("Cyprinella galactura"), Tennessee shiner ("Notropis leuciodus"), telescope shiner ("Notropis telescopus"), and fantail darter ("Etheostoma flabellare").
Breeding has been observed in late spring. Males in breeding colors aggregate in swarms in shallow pools and are briefly visited by females, which spawn and then depart. It may also spawn over the nests of other species, such as the river chub ("Nocomis micropogon") and largescale stoneroller ("Campostoma oligolepis").
The genus contains eight living species, one of which (the loach minnow) is considered Vulnerable. It also includes the extinct Las Vegas dace, which was only first described in 1984 and had disappeared by 1986. The cheat minnow ("Pararhinichthys bowersi"), a natural hybrid of the longnose dace ("R. cataractae") and the river chub ("Nocomis micropogon"), was formerly placed in this genus, but is now valid under "Pararhinichthys".
Like other freshwater mussels, this species reproduces by releasing its larvae, or glochidia, into the water where they make their way into the bodies of fish. There they develop into juvenile mussels. Fish hosts for this mussel include fathead minnow ("Pimephales promelas"); river chub ("Nocomis micropogon"); stoneroller ("Campostoma anomalum"); telescope shiner ("Notropis telescopus"); Tennessee shiner ("Notropis leuciodus"); white shiner ("Luxilus albeolus"); whitetail shiner ("Cyprinella galactura"); and the mottled sculpin ("Cottus bairdi").
"Nocomis platyrhynchus" is generally found in pools and fast moving waterways in North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia. Many populations are located in the New River of West Virginia and its tributaries. The fish prefers clear rivers with warm temperatures. The substrate of rivers inhabited by "N. platyrhynchus" ranges from pebbles to boulders. It avoids the shallowest parts of rivers and waterways, and tends to be found near substrate.
The bull chub ("Nocomis raneyi") is a species of freshwater fish found in the Atlantic drainages of the eastern United States between James River, Virginia, and Neuse River, North Carolina, predominately above the fall line. It can grow to total length, although more commonly it is about . It is a chubby fish with pointed snout, small, subterminal mouth, gold or brown sides, pale or yellowish fins, and in spawning males, rose color on the belly.
Mounds are easy to build, but can be quite extensive. In North American streams, the male cutlip minnow "Exoglossum maxillingua", 90–115 mm long (3.5-4.5 in), assembles mounds that are 75–150 mm high (3–6 in), 30–45 cm in diameter (12–18 in), made up of more than 300 pebbles 13–19 mm in diameter (a quarter to half an inch). The fish carry these pebbles one by one in their mouths, sometimes stealing some from the mounds of other males. The females deposit their eggs on the upstream slope of the mounds, and the males cover these eggs with more pebbles. Males of the hornyhead chub "Nocomis biguttatus", 90 mm long (3.5 in), and of the river chub "Nocomis micropogon", 100 mm long (4 in), also build mounds during the reproductive season. They start by clearing a slight depression in the substrate, which they overfill with up to 10,000 pebbles until the mounds are 60–90 cm (2–3 ft) long (in the direction of the water current), 30–90 cm wide (1–3 ft), and 5–15 cm high (2–6 in). Females lay their eggs among those pebbles. The stone accumulation is free of sand and it exposes the eggs to a good water current that supplies oxygen.
