Sauger - Sander canadensae

 

A large member of the perch family, the sauger is a smaller, slimmer relative of the walleye, which it closely resembles. Like the walleye, it is an important commercial and game fish. Some of its other common names are sand pickerel, sand pike, and doré noir. The body is cylindrical with dark blotches along the sides. They have sharp canine teeth and large cloudy eyes. They can be distinguished from walleye by the dark spots on the spiny dorsal fin. Habitat preferences of the sauger tend to large, turbid, shallow lakes and large, silty, slow-flowing rivers. They occur more often in rivers than in lakes.
