Zander or Walleye

Most North American freshwater fishermen (and fisherwomen) are familiar with the light, tender delicacy that is the walleye. This popular game fish is found all over the united states both in lakes and rivers, and on dinner tables. As sport fishing has grown in Russia, a familiar fish has taken the lead as prized sport.
No, its not the walleye. However, there's not much that differentiates zander from it's North American twin. The trophy fish of the largest paying fishing tournament in Russia, the 1st place catch earned over $27k. Commonly referred to as sudok in Russian, its not difficult to see why this tasty fish has become so popular.
