Zander, or pike-perch as they are sometimes called, have been shrouded in controversy ever since they were first introduced into Britain's rivers and drains in 1963.
They were soon blamed for the decline in fish stocks in the Fens, where they were initally introduced.
Notwithstanding this, forty years after their introduction, zander are now widely accepted and are regarded by many anglers as almost a cult fish.
