Bentophages are benthic eaters, organisms that feed on plant or animal benthos.

Their diet is dominated by benthic invertebrates (bream, crucian carp, sturgeon, teal, whitefish, etc.). Benthophages include crustaceans (bream, muksun, shamay), mollusc eaters and worm eaters - sterlets. Among the benthophagous fish bred and reared in ponds are carps, carps and their hybrids, golden crucian carp.
