The body of the European smelt is typically 15 to 18 cm long, slender and slightly flattened on either side.

The European smelt lives in the pelagic-neritic, anadromous, freshwater, brackish, marine, usually 50 - m environment.

the closely allied European smelt (Osmerus eperlanus) hatch in 8 to 27 days, according to temperature, and the incubation period of the American fish is the same probably, for smelt eggs are reported as hatching in 13 days at the Palmer (Mass.) hatchery. More
