A crayfish's niche is that it is an omnivore, a scavenger that consumes aquatic plants and small invertebrates and is consumed by larger animals, with a large geographical range.


The niche means that the crayfish:

  • Eats both plants and animals
  • Likes to eat things like insects and algae
  • Is eaten and preyed on by things like bass and raccoons
  • Can be found in both fresh and saltwater habitats
