(Lucioperca sandra)

43. Pike-perch

The Pike-Perch is widely spread over Europe, and has been introduced in a few British lakes. The back is dark grey, the belly silvery, and there are several broad vertical stripes similar to those of a Perch. The shapes of the body and the large teeth are similar to a Pike's: it has two dorsal fins, the first spiky like a Perch's but without a black spot. It is a distinct species, related to the Perch, not an impossible crossing between Pike and Perch. Largest angled* in Britain 5 lbs.
*up to 1958.
