Young northern pike, video


This is a video about a northern pike.

The golden hue shows that this is still a young fish. As an adult, it will lose that colour.

The video is by Jos van Zijl in Zutphen in the Netherlands.

    • I think probably, it will grow, and eat bigger prey as an adult.

      Wikipedia writes about this species:

      “The pike have a very typical hunting behavior; they are able to remain stationary in the water by moving the last fin rays of the dorsal fins and the breast fins”.

      So, they are unlike some other predatory fish, like tuna, which swim fast over long distances to catch prey.
