Which one of the following fish variety is a surface feeder?
A. Rohu

B. Catlas

C. Mrigals

D. Common carps

Answer :

Surface feeders mean an organism, usually a fish, which takes its food from the air/water interface, or feeds just below the water surface. This feeds on zooplanktons. For example: catlas.


Rohu are column feeders which are omnivores (flesh eaters). Mrigals and common carps are omnivorous which feed both on zooplanktons and other marine animals and hence are called bottom feeders.


Hence correct answer is B.
