I think the "the minnow" may be a little too generic. To some people a minnow is anything that is small and isn't a game species. How about a more scientific grouping like the sucker, madtom or darter? I'd be up for that. "The darter" is precise, yet there is a wide diversity in darters.


<I still go for the generic fish, that lives in both Alaska and Florida
(say, "the minnow"). We could provide an excellent rationale for
designating not a single species but a group the "National Fish." After
all, isn't America about diversity?>
