Nile Perch

Nile perch

The Nile Perch - a freshwater fish - is a distant relation of the barramundi. Found in many African lakes and rivers, it is a huge fish - capable of growing to 200kgs - which dominates its environment. Ours come from Lake Victoria which lies between Uganda and Tanzania, where it was introduced in about 70 years ago.
