Spawning Zander in Holland Captured in Great Underwater Footage

Zander are a common and popular gamefish in Europe known as the pike-perch. Here’s some great footage of a spawning pair.

Anytime we get to see a gamefish on a spawning bed we like it. While the zander is closely related to the North American walleye and is well sought after by anglers, it’s actually considered an invasive species in the UK.

Here’s how a fish that can reach over 40 pounds gets its start in life.

Thanks to the Holland – Nature in the Delta Facebook page for sharing this unique and beautiful video! This crystal clear footage will make every fisherman who targets these great fish feel the conservationist in themselves.

Seeing all those eggs lying in the aquatic vegetation on the bottom makes us all want to work for clean waters everywhere. Here’s one of the reasons why we try to practice catch and release, and once in a while have a shore lunch as well.
