  • Perch, a favourite among fishermen

    Perch is one of the easiest fish to catch, to the joy of anglers young and old.

    It can be recognized by its vertical stripes, giving it a zebra-like look, and its first dorsal fin lined with spikes.

    Perch live in shallow freshwater, generally near vegetation, branches or dead trees to which their sticky eggs can attach.

  • The primitive bowfin

    The bowfin is the last living member of a family of fishes that has existed for 100 million years!

    Bowfins are found only in North America, in the marshy bays of lakes, streams and rivers.

    Unlike other fish, it fills its swim bladder (which enables it to regulate the depth at which it swims) by taking in air at the water’s surface.
