Rare burbots in the Netherlands

In British waters, the burbot is extinct.

During the twentieth century, this fish species also became extinct in much of the Netherlands because of pollution.

Recently, a professional fisherman in Flevoland province caught five adults. The biggest of those fish was 60 centimeter. So, for the burbot, though on the Dutch red list, there still may be some hope.
