A Camouflaged Yellow Perch

freshwater fish

A juvenile fish, appearing to be a yellow perch (Perca flavenscens), meets me face-to-face, in the shallows of Wyman Lake, staring curiously while camouflaged with the mossy, stone background. Young perch face challenges in the lake being that they are on the menu for a variety of predatory fish including walleye and northern pike – also in some areas birds can take a heavy toll. To compensate for low survival rates, yellow perch produce large quantities of eggs. This means that even small populations of perch can rebound quickly if conditions are good.
