Scaled collection of drawings of Bluegill in front and side poses with length measurement

The Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) is a panfish, usually very bold, expressing no fear for humans. It is used as a baitfish besides also playing an important role in keeping the population of insects and crustacean low. Male Bluegills make the spawning bed and are more colorful than females.

The fish is also called brim, sunny, bream, and copper nose and belong to the sunfish family Centrarchidae, inhabiting streams, lakes, ponds, and rivers of North America. These omnivorous freshwater fish show very distinctive coloring and condensed bodies with faces and gills covered in deep blue and purple color and bellies in yellow or orange color.

Bluegills have a total length between 7”-16” (18-41 cm), body height of 3”-6.5” (7.6-16.5 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 1-2.6 lb (.5-1.2 kg). The typical lifespan of the Bluegill is 5-10 years.

Freshwater fish are fish that spend some or all of their live in water with a salinity level lower than .05%. Freshwater fish, due to the segmented nature of ponds, lakes, and rivers, are subject to speciation similar to species on islands.
