According to the Fish & Chip shop in the above Georgian Bay, N. Ontario resort (may not all be true)
Cormorants (from China?) are depleting Pickerel[not cheap - $24 for 2 pieces] supplies (eating large nos. each day), and fishermen are finding their nests and - erm --
The large Pickerel (with Red eyes) mounted on their wall could never be replaced, because there is a ban on taking Pickerel over a certain size ..
It never occurred to me that this could be a problem, & in view of declining fish in the Lake District (esp. chad?) it got me wondering ..
I'm sure AR would approve, because of course local industry (as with eels) must take precedence ..
The Walleye (Sander vitreus vitreus, formerly Stizostedion vitreum vitreum) is a freshwater perciform fish native to most of Canada and to the northern United States. It is a North American close relative of the European pikeperch. The walleye is sometimes also called the yellow walleye to distinguish it from the extinct blue walleye.
In some parts of its range, the walleye is also known as the walleyed pike, yellow pike or pickerel (esp. in English-speaking Canada), although the fish is related neither to the pikes nor to the pickerels, both of which are members of the family Esocidae.
