Scaled collection of drawings of Walleye in front and side poses

The Walleye (Sander vitreus) are members of the family Percidae native to most freshwater bodies in Canada and the Northern United States. Its name comes from its eyes that are pointed upwards. These freshwater fish are nocturnal and prefer to travel in shallow waters.

Walleyes are one of the most commonly stocked game fish, distinguished by a big mouth with sharp teeth, long and thin bodies with gold or olive color patterns, and a white underside. They also have five or more color bands crossed on their backs. Besides, the Walleye has two dorsal fins (one spiny and another soft-rayed) and migrate to tributary streams to breed.

Walleyes have a total length between 22”-42” (56-107 cm), body height of 4.5”-8.5” (11.4-21.6 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 3-7 lb (1.4-3.2 kg). The typical lifespan of the Walleye is 15-25 years.

Freshwater fish are fish that spend some or all of their live in water with a salinity level lower than .05%. Freshwater fish, due to the segmented nature of ponds, lakes, and rivers, are subject to speciation similar to species on islands.
