Catostomus commersoni. Sold commercially as “mullet.”
Medium-sized fish with dark back and silvery sides. Key trait is the sucker mouth below the nose – it looks like it's making kissy-faces at you.
Shuffling around rocks in shallow lakes and rivers.
Occasionally confused with:
Longnose suckers, which look very similar and often interbreed with white suckers.
They lay up to 50,000 eggs at once during spawning.
