Zander at nest, video


This video is from the Netherlands.

The maker of the video is Campetto.

Translated from the YouTube description

“Old zander on its nest (a ball of twine) in the Kraayenbergse Plassen lake near Beers”.

The spawning of pike-perch is in April and May and the male makes the nest from plant roots or, eg, rope over hard sand, gravel or clay soils. He protects the eggs and larvae, and provides them with fresh, oxygenated water by fanning them with his fins.
