A species of fish living in slow flowing rivers, lakes and ponds, which is sought as both a sport and food fish. Although the Zander may grow to a weight of over 20 pounds and is prized as a good fighting fish, it is generally caught for use as a food source ranging in weight from 4 to 8 pounds. Similar in appearance and flavor to a Walleye, the Zander provides a firm white meat that flakes nicely when cooked. Most common in Europe where it is also known as the Pikeperch, this fish is often baked, fried or grilled and then served as a main dish or as a meat ingredient for salads.
