saving fish


The European perch (Perca fluviatilis), also known simply as perch, is a freshwater fish native to Europe and northern Asia. It is a popular species among anglers and is known for its distinctive appearance with dark vertical stripes along its body. Perch are carnivorous and feed on smaller fish, insects, and crustaceans. They are commonly found in lakes, rivers, and ponds with clear water and vegetation. Perch play an important role in the ecosystem as both predator and prey.

I tried to save as many perch as possible from the intermittent stream. Unfortunately, it was not possible to save all of them, as some of the perch were already in a very bad condition due to the poor water quality. Perches have been released into water where they will have many chances to survive. (plenty of oxygen, food, etc.).

In terms of conservation, the European perch population can be affected by factors such as habitat degradation, pollution, and overfishing. It’s important to adhere to fishing regulations and practice responsible angling to help maintain healthy perch populations in their natural habitats.
