French: Perche du Nil


The Nile perch is also called Lake Victoria perch. However it is not a true perch… nor did it ever live in the Nile! Lake Victoria is the second largest natural lake in the world, covering over 80,000 km2 in Africa; it is surrounded by Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania and is the origin source for the Nile River.

Nile perch has gained international recognition and is considered one of the world's best table fishes.
