Of these, just over a dozen are game species actually pursued in sports fishing. The most common game species on lakes and in coastal areas are pike, perch and zander. Trout, grayling and salmon are the most sought-after species at river sites and they are also found in many standing waters. Whitefish, burbot and various cyprinids can be found throughout the country.
