Age, growth and environmental requirements of pike

Part of the Fish and Fisheries Series book series (FIFI, volume 19)


Pike are important keystone piscivores that are common in circumpolar fish communities from subtropical to Arctic waters. They can tolerate a broad range of environmental conditions but are primarily mesothermal ‘cool water’ fish best adapted to shallow, moderately productive, mesotrophic—eutrophic, freshwater environments.
